National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Sent: October 17, 2016
On Saturday October 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the DEA is promoting the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day which provides a venue at the Kenilworth Police Department for persons who want to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs to include controlled substances
The Kenilworth Police Department has served for several years as a collection site for unwanted prescription drugs with the exception of controlled substances. However, on October 22, any prescription drugs to include controlled substances will be accepted. Common controlled substances include: Actiq, Tequin, Daytrana, Zerit, Duragesic, Meperidine, Oxycontin, Reyataz, Avinza, Xyrem, Baraclude, Fentora and Percocet. Residents are asked to leave the drugs in their original packaging, identifying the contents, but may black out names that that are on the containers.
Prescription drugs that are more than a year old, as well as non-prescription medications with expiration dates that are more than 6 months old, should be disposed of.
