I copied this from the Greater St. Charles Chamber of Commerce Newsletter. But it is something worth passing on. I want to thank Rebecca Schoeneberg Attorney at Law for bringing it to my attention.
Time to clean out your medicine cabinet and safely get rid of old, unused or expired medications at the St. Peters Police Department’s National Rx Take Back Event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018, at the St. Peters Justice Center.
This service is for prescription drugs only, not over-the-counter drugs. All prescription medications will be accepted with no questions asked. Police cannot accept any medications before or after the event, so be sure to drop off medications strictly between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. No early birds or late comers, please.
The U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency is coordinating the National Rx Take Back Event. The St. Peters Police Department is participating in the event because unused prescription medication is a potential source of supply for illegal use and a risk to public health and safety. Safely disposing unused medicines at this event eliminates the possibility of the drugs harming someone else or getting into the wrong hands.
The service is free and anonymous. To remain anonymous, remove identifying information from prescription medicine container labels before disposal. Tightly seal the cap on any liquid product, such as cough syrup. Intravenous solutions, injectables and needles will not be accepted. Illegal substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
The St. Peters Justice Center is located at 1020 Grand Teton Dr, at the corner of Grand Teton Drive and Suemandy Drive near Mid Rivers Mall.
