Dispose of old prescriptions at drug take-back event

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The public can get rid of old or unused prescription medications at a free drug take-back event hosted by the University of Arizona Police Department.

UAPD will hold the event on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the department at 1852 E. First Street for people to rid of their prescription medications, pills or tablets in original plastic containers. The DEA said this event will help prevent pill abuse and theft.

The department will not accept glass containers, liquids, aerosols, inhalers, intra-venous solutions, injectables or syringes. Officials ask that all personal information be removed from prescription labels.
