Another Drug Take Back Day Coming April 27

LIHU`E, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — The Kaua’i Police Department will be collecting unused, unwanted, or expired prescription medications and other drugs on National Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 27, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at KPD headquarters. Tablets, capsules, liquids, and other forms of medication – prescription or nonprescription – including patches, will be accepted. New or used needles and syringes will not be accepted. Police say the service is free and anonymous, and no questions will be asked. Drug Take Back Day is part of a national initiative coordinated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency which focuses on providing a safe, convenient, and responsible method of disposing medications, while also educating the community about the potential for abuse and consequences of improper storage and disposal. Anyone who is not able to participate in this National Drug Take-Back Day can still visit KPD headquarters at any time and anonymously drop off any unused or expired medication via the permanently installed medication drop box.
