The National Take Back Initiative returns to St. Albans with another opportunity for you to properly dispose of your unused, unwanted, or expired medications. Bring them to St. Albans Police Department this Saturday, April 27 from 10am to 2pm to drop them off. We will take medicines that are over the counter, pet meds, or even scheduled pain narcotics.
Many families have medicines left over from a loved one that has passed away and are looking for a way to properly dispose of them.
We will take pills, capsules, patches, or liquids. If you bring liquid medicines, please keep them in the original containers. Remove or obliterate any personal information on any labels.
There is a 5K race going on, so feel free to stay and watch.
The National Take Back Initiative is a nationwide program sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration to help curb prescription drug abuse and clean the environment. Flushing medicines down the toilet increases the chemicals needed to treat waste water to make it safe.
