Spring Clean Your Medicine Cabinet: 4/28
April 20, 2012
Medication Take Back Day will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. behind the Newton Police Department, 1321 Washington
This event, which takes place at locations throughout the country, is
an opportunity for anyone to bring prescription and over-the-counter
solid medications for safe disposal. Properly disposing of medication
helps keep it out of the water supply, and can help prevent illicit use
or accidental ingestion.
“If you’re not going to use the medication, it is best to get rid of it for
safety,” said Newton Police Capt. Edward Boudreau.
The program is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency who will
collect and incinerate the medication after the Take Back Day.
A list of additional collection sites is available at https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/SEARCH-NTBI/
For questions, call Boudreau at 617-796-2146.
