Do you have unused or expired prescription medications in your home? Don’t let them get into the wrong hands. Drop them off at the National Rx Take Back Event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27, 2019, at the St. Peters Justice Center.

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

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. Do not bring over-the-counter medications. No medications will be accepted before 10 a.m. or after 2 p.m.

Intravenous solutions, injectables and needles will not be accepted. Illegal substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not part of this program.

All prescription medications will be accepted with no questions asked. To remain anonymous, remove identifying information from prescription medicine container labels before disposal. Tightly seal the cap on liquid products, such as cough syrup.

Unused prescription medications are a risk to public health and safety, and are a potential source for illegal use. The safe disposal of unused medicine eliminates the possibility of drugs getting into the wrong hands and causing harm.
