Do you have unused or expired prescription medications lying around the house? Don’t let them get into the wrong hands—drop them off at the National Rx Take Back Event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the St. Peters Justice Center. 

 

This free event is open to the public and sponsored by the St. Peters Police Department and the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency. Only prescription drugs will be accepted, no over-the-counter drugs. The drop-off period is strictly from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.—we cannot accept medications before or after these times. 

 

A potential source of supply for illegal use, unused prescription medications pose an unacceptable risk to public health and safety. The safe disposal of unused medicine eliminates the possibility of the drugs getting into the wrong hands and causing harm. 

 

All prescription medications will be accepted with no questions asked. To remain anonymous, feel free to remove identifying information from prescription medicine container labels before disposal. Tightly seal the cap on any liquid product, such as cough syrup. Intravenous solutions, injectables and needles will not be accepted. Illegal substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.

 

The Justice Center is located at 1020 Grand Teton Dr., on the corner of Grand Teton Drive and Suemandy Drive near Mid Rivers Mall.
