Pack Up Your Drugs, Take Back Day Is Coming

TAKE-BACK-300x184The Orange Police Department is participating in “Drug Take Back Day” on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Officer Robert Amarone will be at the CVS, 279 Boston Post Road along with members of the Orange CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) collecting unwanted prescription medications.

Many teenagers and young people who abuse prescription drugs get them from family and friends or from their home medicine cabinets.

Prescription drugs pose dangers to children and others who may take them by accident or who may use them for abusive purposes. Expired drugs may have lost their effectiveness and therefore no longer be a safe and adequate treatment for the conditions for which they were prescribed.

In addition to concerns of potential poisoning, abuse or overdose, it also is important environmentally that medicines be disposed of in a proper manner rather than simply being thrown into garbage, flushed away or poured down drains, as they could contaminate water supplies and cause an environmental hazard.

All you have to do is bring your old prescriptions (bottles and all) to the drop off and place them in one of the containers. No one is allowed to touch or inspect the contents, so your privacy is guaranteed. The DEA officer will load a van with all of the bags and bring them to an undisclosed location where they will be incinerated.
