STATEWIDE — If you have unused or expired medications in your medicine cabinet, you will have a chance to get rid of them safely this weekend.
The annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be held Saturday, April 24, at Indiana State Police posts around the state.
Anyone wishing to participate can drop off their prescription drugs for disposal between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. local time.
Vaping pens without batteries and vaping cartridges will be accepted, but new or used needles will not be accepted.
The medication collection service is free, no questions asked.
“We won’t ask you how you got the pills or how you obtained them. We’ll just take them and put them in the receptacles,” said Stephen Wheeles, state police public Information officer for the Versailles district. “It’s a good way to make sure these prescription drugs get taken off your hands and not get into the wrong hands.”
