Police collecting unwanted medications

To the editor:

    Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, April 28th. This take back day will be supported by the Drug Enforcement Agency, therefore we would like everyone to drop off any unused or unwanted medication no later than April 28th at your local police department.

Just drop off medication anytime, no questions asked. During the last Drug Take Back Day, Aroostook County police collected 1,440 pounds of unused, unwanted or expired medications.

    Drug Take Back Day is anonymous and free. People are asked to remove any personal identifying info from labels. Medicine accepted includes prescription, over-the-counter or veterinary pills, drops and ointments. Help keep our environment safe and clean and keep harmful drugs away from our youth!
