Vermont police departments collect unused prescription drugs

Vermont police departments collect unused prescription drugs

Many citizens are not aware of how to properly dispose of their unused medications.

Numerous locations who participated in the Drug Take Back Day have drop boxes so that people can drop off medications anytime in the day or night.

The National Take Back initiative in the Sedgwick County area will collect any expired or unwanted prescriptions or over-the-counter medications.

In the most recent National Prescription Drug Take Back event last April, 155 Tennessee law enforcement agencies worked with community partners at 187 participating take back sites to collect more than 20,000 pounds of prescription drugs.

"Prescription drugs are highly addictive and can be just as risky and deadly as any street drug", said U.S. Attorney Davis.

Anyone could drive up and drop off medications, no questions asked. The DEA can not accept liquids, needles or sharps.

The take-back was hosted by U.P. Health Plan in collaboration with the Drug Enforcement Agency and the University of MI. Personal information will be removed from the containers. They are aiming to provide a responsible way of disposing prescription drugs and also educating the public on the potential abuse of medications.

On a federal level, DEA officials expect on Saturday to top 10 million pounds of prescription drugs collected since the beginning of Drug Take Back Day.

Frances Ann Stultz stopped by the Winter Park Police Department on Saturday morning to drop off her unwanted prescription pills.
