Northam urges Virginians to safely dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs

Samantha Long | 30 October, 2018, 00:33

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, October 27 from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.

The National Take Back initiative in the Sedgwick County area will collect any expired or unwanted prescriptions or over-the-counter medications. This is in line with the Drug Disposal Act, which encourages both public and private entities to provide and develop a variety of safer ways to dispose of prescription drugs in a responsible manner.

"It's a program that was started in 2010 by the Drug Enforcement Administration", Castaneda said. However no liquids, inhalers, patches, or syringes will be accepted at the sites.

Police have said that the marsupial was "lucky to be alive due to given the amount of salt water he inhaled" The Mercury reported. Struggling to regain control, the animal quickly became exhausted from trying to stay afloat and tread the raging waters.

The OPPD has two locations that will take prescription pills any day, no questions asked. "Proper disposal of unused, unwanted and/or expired prescription medications helps not only protect our environment, but more importantly, saves lives". Further, disposing of unused medicines by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash can pose safety and health hazards. Pet parents should also know how important it is to keep anything poisonous or harmful, such as prescription medication, out of their pets' reach. Personal information will be removed from the containers.

The state record for prescription drugs collected on a Take Back Day is just over 28,000, said Arkansas Drug Director Kirk Lane.

You'll be able to drop off pills at multiple locations across the region. A year ago they collected around 150 pounds.
