MPD announces Drug Take-Back day

Staff Writer

Saturday, April 25, between 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM, the Malvern Police Department will be stationed at the Wal-Mart Supercenter to collect expired and unused medications in the state’s tenth Take Back event, and the first Take Back event to be organized locally this year. Drop-off is completely anonymous and no questions will be asked. Medications may be returned in any container or removed from the original pill bottles for increased privacy. Unwanted prescription, over the counter, and vitamins or other nutritional supplements will be accepted.

This 2015 Take Back event is supported by the Malvern Police Department in collaboration with the Office of the Drug Director, the DEA Little Rock Field Office, the Arkansas National Guard, Arkansas Rotary Clubs, the Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy, the Arkansas Department of Health, the Arkansas Department of Health and over 170 additional law enforcement and government agencies, community organizations, and public health providers who comprise the Arkansas Prescription Drug Coalition. Please visit www.artakeback.org for additional information.

If anyone is unable to make this event, there is a Drop Off Box located at the Malvern Police Department located at 215 East Highland Ave. It is open Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
