RED BANK HOSTS DRUG TURN-IN ON OCT. 22

red-bank-pdPress release from Red Bank Police Department

Commonly prescribed painkillers and other prescription medications have been linked to the epidemic of drug use in communities throughout the United States — and this Saturday, October 22, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration will stage a coast-to-coast National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, during which the public will be encouraged to bring any unused or expired prescription medications to designated drop-off points for safe disposal.

Here in the Red Bank area, the borough Police Station at 90 Monmouth Street will be open between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to receive any dropped off materials (no needles will be accepted for this program). For additional information, go here or call (800)882-9539.
