BEAVER DAM, Ky. — The Beaver Dam Police will do its part for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day as it hosts a local Drug Take Back Day at the Beaver Dam Wal-Mart tomorrow, Apr. 27.
Ohio County residents can bring their old, potentially dangerous, prescription medicine to the Beaver Dam Wal-Mart from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. tomorrow. The BDPD will take the medicine and dispose of it.
According to the KSP, the drug take back program is designed to be easy for citizens and offered the following tips for those interested in participating:
- Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box located at the drop off location.
- All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids in consumer containers will be accepted. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in original containers. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
- Intravenous solutions, injectables and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
- Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative and should not be placed in collection containers.
