National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
|The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is scheduled for Saturday, September 26th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Residents are invited to drop off their old prescription or over-the-counter medications (no needles or sharps) in a collection box which will be located in front of Smith's Food & Drug, 156 South Main in Brigham City. Citizens can place their unused medications/drugs into the collection box anonymously. They will not be required to provide any personal information nor will they be required to pay for the disposal service. The medications will later be retrieved and incinerated.|
This drug collection/disposal program provides a safe, legal and environmentally acceptable drug disposal method for citizens. The safe disposal of medications protects water quality, keeps drugs out of the hands of criminals and lowers the potential for accidental overdoses by children or the elderly.
Residents are encouraged not to keep expired or unused medications. After expiration, pharmaceutical compounds can deteriorate, lose effectiveness, and may even be harmful. Storing may also create a danger for children through accidental or intentional usage.
For additional information, please contact the Brigham City Police Department at (435) 734-6655.
