Today is the day to clean out your medicine cabinet!
The Indiana State Police and Drug Enforcement Administration are teaming up today for the 19th annual “Drug Take-Back Day.”
Residents can be a part of the addiction solution by bagging up their expired, unused, and unwanted pharmaceuticals for proper disposal.
The Indiana State Police Jasper Post on Newton Street is collecting medications from 10 am to 2 pm EDT. The Holland and Celestine Fire Stations are also collecting medications from 10 am to 12 noon EDT.
Due to the pandemic, all three sites will be drive-thru. Residents are asked to wear a mask and stay inside their car until a volunteer assists them.
The Huntingburg and Jasper Police Stations also accept unwanted medications 24/7 at their drop boxes.
No needles, infectious materials, anything containing bodily fluids or waste will be accepted.
This collection is for private citizens only. Collections from businesses and health facilities will not be accepted.
