April 26, 2014 from 10am to 2pm at the St. Albans Police Department (51 6th Avenue)
We are having four events to help start the spring cleaning and help prevent drug abuse, identity theft, and keep you kids safe.
1) The National Drug Take Back Event:
This returns to St. Albans. Bring your old, expired, or unwanted medications in for proper disposal. NO NEEDLES PLEASE! Liquid medicines must be in original containers! Help keep fight drug abuse and keep potentially abusive drugs out of the wrong hands.
This disposal keeps medicines out of the water treatment systems which increases the costs to make sewage safe. This nationwide program is brought about through a partnership with the US Attorney’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration. St. Albans Police Department joins dozens of local police agencies in providing you with this opportunity to SAFELY dispose of any medicines (including pet meds and over the counter meds). You can remove or obliterate any personal information.
2) Document Shredding Event:
A first for our city, this is brought to you by the City of St. Albans and Cintas Corporation. Help prevent you becoming a victim of identity theft by bringing any old documents, files, bank information, checks, etc. and it will be properly shredded and recycled. Please bring ONLY PAPER! No binders please! All paper must be ready to shred!
3) Cell Phones for Soldiers
Bring you old, used, or broken cell phones for disposal and recycling! This event is sponsored by the St. Albans American Legion Post #73 and is one of only two places in the state which has a collection site. These phones will end up with the Cell for Soldiers national group who will have them recycled in return for money used to purchase phone cards for our deployed military personnel worldwide.
4) Child Safety Seat Inspection
Certified personnel from St. Albans Police Department will inspect your car’s child safety seat to verify it’s proper installation.
These events are all FREE! This kicks off the City’s ward by ward clean-up culminating in a City-wide clean up on May 9.
