Drug Take-Back Event this Saturday, April 27, 2013
MAT-SU—The Matanuska-Susitna Borough hosts three sites where you can safely dispose of your unused, unwanted, or expired medications. It is an anonymous service where everything collected is boxed up and taken for incineration by Alaska State Troopers.
The public has embraced the opportunity these Take-Back Day events provide to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. Local law enforcement agencies in thousands of American communities have partnered with the DEA in the previous five events that have taken place since September 2010.
