Torrington Police Department hosting prescription drug Take Back event Saturday

Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) April 25, 2012

"On April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Torrington Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
Local residents may take medications for disposal to the Torrington Police Department at 576 Main St Torrington, CT. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last October, Americans turned in 377,080 pounds—188.5 tons—of prescription drugs at more than 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,000 state and local law enforcement partners. In its three previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners took in almost a million pounds—nearly 500 tons—of pills." Read More
