State Police Organize Prescription Drop Off Saturday

If you have prescription drugs that are expired or unused, the Drug Enforcement Administration is sponsoring a take back initiative.

On Saturday, the 10th annual “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative will take place. The event looks to prevent drug abuse and possible theft by properly disposing of the substances.

Collection sites will be set-up nationwide so that the prescription drugs can be prevented from polluting the environment. According to information released by the Indiana State Police, the program is limited to liquid and pill medications. Needles are not accepted.

Drugs can be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except on Toll Roads between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
