East Cocalico participates in Take Back Day
The public is invited to bring their leftover prescription drugs that are either out of date or will not be used again to the East Cocalico Police Station on Oct. 29 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
People who improperly dispose of prescription drugs by throwing them away or flushing them down a commode risk having them leach into the soil and the local water table. Also, people who should not have the drugs could get hold of them.
"Yes, the National Take Back Days on the local level are always successful," said Police Chief George Beever. "We get a lot (of pills) turned back in to us."
"This is the third time East Cocalico is doing the National Take Back Day," Beever said. "Sgt. Burns is in charge of this endeavor."
The United States Drug Enforcement Administration collected 309 tons of pills during the last two National Take Back Days, held in Sept. 2010 and April 2011.
East Cocalico Sgt. Ray Burns can answer any residents’ questions pertaining to the National Take Back Day. He can be reached at 336-1725.
The station is located at 100 Hill Road, Denver.
