The Indiana State Police is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for the 21st nationwide "Prescription Drug Take Back" initiative.
During Drug Take Back Day, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23, collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs so they can be properly disposed of.
All Indiana State Police posts (except for the Toll Road Post) will be used as collection sites between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
ISP says that medications in both liquid and pill form will be accepted during Drug Take Back Day. Vaping pens without batteries or juice cartridges will also be accepted. Needles will not be accepted for disposal.
The Drug Take Back Day initiative aims to address the abuse and misuse of prescription medicines in the US. ISP says the service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.
