Dublin Police Services to Host a Drug Take-Back Event on Saturday, October 24

October 24 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.  Dublin Police Services will do its part in addressing this public safety and public health crisis by holding a Drug Take-Back event on October 24, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Dublin Civic Center (100 Civic Plaza).

This is a free and anonymous collection.  Dublin Police will collect tablets, capsules, and all other solid dosage forms of prescription medications, no questions asked.  Intravenous solutions, injectables, and syringes will not be accepted.

It is estimated that approximately 9.9 million Americans misuse controlled prescription drugs.  A majority of the abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.  Additionally, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or simply throwing them away - both safety and health hazards.  More information can be found at www.dea.gov
