Drug take-back scheduled
Lone Tree area residents are encouraged to bring unused and expired prescriptions to the police department’s office at 9220 Kimmer Drive between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday. The service is part of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative.
All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids will be accepted. Intravenous solutions, injectables, syringes, chemotherapy drugs and illicit drugs cannot be accepted.
The free, anonymous event aims to prevent pill abuse and theft by encouraging the public to rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs.
The DEA started the program in 2010. In 2012, Americans turned in 244 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,200 sites.
