The U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration is holding its National Drug Take-Back Day this Saturday, April 27. The Van Buren County drop-off location will be the WalMart parking lot in Clinton. Stop by and drop off any unused, unwanted, or expired prescription medications between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. All medicines dropped off will be properly disposed of by local law enforcement.
The purpose of the National Drug Take-Back Day is to keep prescription medications out of the hands of children and other individuals and to keep our environment clean. It is quick and easy, just drive up and drop off your medications and you’ll be on your way. For more information on the Drug Take-Back, contact Lucas at (501) 269-9674 or go online to www.ARtakeback.org.
You may also pick up a free medication lock-box and substance abuse prevention materials. These will be provided by the TEA Coalition, which is Van Buren County’s Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition.
