Re: Drug Take Back Day

 

On Saturday, October 29, 2011, the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department, along with the entire state of Arkansas, will hold its third annual statewide Prescription Drug Take Back Day, as part of a national effort by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Residents can bring their used, expired, and unwanted household drugs to the TAPD Wal-Mart Substation on Arkansas Boulevard from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for proper disposal.

It is all of our responsibility to protect our youth against prescription drug abuse and to protect the environment by properly disposing of outdated and un-used prescription drugs. “This is a tremendous opportunity for people to make a difference in the efforts to stop prescription abuse”, says Officer Kristi Mitchell.
