Drug Take Back Program
Saturday, September 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Perrysburg Police Division, 330 Walnut Street
On Saturday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Perrysburg Police Division and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
Community members can bring medications for disposal to Perrysburg Police Division, 330 Walnut Street. The service is free and anonymous–no questions asked.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines–flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash–both pose potential safety and health hazards.
The Journal office in Perrysburg has the following hours of operation:
Monday: 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday-Friday: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
