The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day – April 28, 2018

 Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to potential accidental poisoning, misuse, and overdose. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment. That’s why a Drug Take Back Day is a great community event that encourages everyone in our good city to clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in – safely and anonymously – prescription drugs.

Tomorrow, Saturday April 28, 2018 from 10am-2pm, bring your unused or expired prescriptions to the Princeton Police Department for disposal.
