If you’ve got old medicines that you don’t need anymore, here’s your prescription for safe disposal: The St. Peters Police Department is participating in the National Rx Take Back Event on Saturday, Sept. 26 with prescription drug collection taking place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the St. Peters Justice Center, 1020 Grand Teton Drive.
Medications will be accepted with no questions asked; however, this free service is for prescription drugs only, not over-the-counter drugs.
Accepted are prescription medications that are out-of-date or no longer needed. Intravenous solutions, injectables and needles will not be accepted. Illegal substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
