National Drug Take Back event and Spring Clean-Up

NTBI 2016

Begin your Spring Clean-Up this Saturday, April 30th from 10am to 2pm, the St. Albans Police Department is hosting another drug take back event!  People are encouraged to bring their unused, unwanted, or expired medications to the Department at 51 6th Avenue so they can be safely disposed of.  Bring prescriptions*, over the counter meds, vitamins, or even pet meds!  This safe disposal system keeps the medications out of the hands of those who may abuse harder prescriptions.  It also protect kids who may mistakenly take something.

If you’ve recently had a loved one pass or a recent change in medication, events like this will give you peace of mind so you can get any pain medicines out of your house!

Also at the police department, the Cell Phones for Soldiers organization will be collecting unwanted cell phones or tablets.  They will be refurbished and distributed to deployed soldiers.

Finally, back by popular demand, KnightHorse Shredding will return to collect any old documents you want shredded.  Do you have old bills or check stubs from the 70s?  Do you want to hide the fact you wrote a check for a pet rock in 1974?  Bring any of those documents down and they’ll be completely shredded.

All of this kicks off at 10am on Saturday, April 30th.  It ends at 2pm, so don’t delay!  Spread the word!  THIS SATURDAY AT 10AM!!!

*NO NEEDLES CAN BE ACCEPTED!  Liquid medicines can only be accepted if in the original container.  Remove or obliterate all names from any bottles for further peace of mind.  Pills or capsules may be removed from original containers and all placed in one unmarked container.
