Indiana State Police Partner with the DEA for Drug Take-Back Day

INDIANAPOLIS (WOWO): This weekend, the Indiana State Police and Drug Enforcement Administration will offer residents a chance to get rid of pills, cough syrup, and other unwanted medications that have been accumulating around their homes.

The ninth “National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day” will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 27, 2014. The event offers the public an opportunity to drop off expired or unused prescription medications to law enforcement for proper disposal.

Past Take-Back Day events have been hugely successful, collecting more than 324 tons of prescription medications nationwide last October alone. Citizens wishing to participate in this program may drop off their prescription drugs for disposal at any Indiana State Police Post throughout the state. This includes the Bremen Post on Saturday, September 27, between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
