POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - April 30 may be your chance to get rid of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
The Poplar Bluff Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency is holding a "takeback" event on the 30th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. It'll be at the Black River Coliseum on 301 S. 5th. According to a news release, the service is "free and anonymous, no questions asked."
DEA officials say you're welcome to take pills and/or patches for disposal, but they cannot accept liquids or needles.
The DEA says the initiative "addresses a vital public safety and public health issue" because medicines that stay in home cabinets are subject to misuse and abuse.
