NORRISTOWN — Montgomery County-wide police are ready to collect all unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications as part of a drug takeback day hosted by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and the Montgomery County Police Chiefs Association. The event will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 10 am to 2 pm and has 29 collection points throughout Montgomery County, including police stations, grocery stores, primary schools and public libraries.
“Since 2010, when this drug takeback program was launched in Montgomery County, we have collected and safely disposed of approximately £ 98,000 of prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. That is an amazing amount, and certainly these. By taking the medicine out of the house, we saved an overdose accident by a young person or older, “says local attorney Steele. “We are aiming to exceed the £ 100,000 milestone on this drug takeback day. Residents need to put the entire pill or pill container into a Ziploc buggy and drop it at the participating police station. Is very easy. “
Prescription and over-the-counter tablets and capsules, inhalers, creams, ointments, nasal drops, pet medicines, and ointment products are accepted during the Drug Takeback Day and throughout the year in the Permanent MedReturn Box. Needles, drugs and intravenous / injection solutions cannot be used.
