DEA Drug Take Back Day Slated for Saturday
National Prescription Drug Take Back day is slated for this Saturday, October 23 in Bucks County.
In addition to prescription medications, police officials will be collecting over-the-counter and pet medications. Vaping products will be accepted for disposal at all hosting sites and in collections boxes in local police departments. As with all medications, vaping cartridges, pods and e-cigarettes should be disposed of safely.
Additionally four sites – located in Bensalem, Hilltown, Quakertown and Warwick – will also be holding a Narcan Drive-thru event also.
Sharps will also be collected at these four sites also.
Residents can drive up, drop off your unused, unneeded or expired medications and sharps and receive one unit of Narcan while supplies last.
