On Saturday, April 24, the Indiana State Police, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will host a "Prescription Drug Take Back" initiative.
Collection sites will be set up throughout Indiana and nationwide for the event, where expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs can be properly disposed of without threat to the environment.
According to ISP, the sites will accept both liquid and pill medications. Additionally, vaping pens without batteries and vaping cartridges will also be taken.
Needles, whether new or used, will not be accepted for disposal.
ISP says that the initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft through the proper disposal of prescription drugs.
Anyone who would like to properly dispose of the allowed items can visit any ISP post from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 24.
