Drug Take Back Day April 24 In Texarkana
The Texarkana Arkansas Police Announce the 'Drug Take-Back' Day on April 24.
the "Drug Take Back Day" is all about giving the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
Bring your medications for disposal to the Texarkana Emergency Center Saturday, April 24th from 8 am until 12 pm, The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. If you cannot make those times there will be three locations available for you to drop off your drugs. The Miller county office, Texarkana Emergency Center, and Bi-State have bins available for you to use.
This program was initiated to address the alarming number of deaths that have occurred from misuse of prescription drugs. These drugs have been obtained from current or old prescriptions that have sat unused in medicine cabinets.
Another reason for this program is to properly dispose of their old prescriptions flushed down the toilet can be harmful to our drinking water. And prescriptions that are just thrown away wind up in landfills and may seep into our drinking water as well.
