UA police set to collect prescription drugs Saturday

The city of Upper Arlington's Police Division will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration's National Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 26, at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.

Residents in Upper Arlington and surrounding communities are invited to safely dispose of unwanted or unused prescription drugs. Removing these items from a home can reduce the danger of unintentional use or overdose and illegal abuse.

Only unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications from personal homes will be accepted. Do not bring needles or other "sharps," liquids or inhalers.

Participants are asked to empty pills into a plastic bag to simplify the drop-off process.

For more information call the police division at 614-583-5197.
