Dispose a Med Event - Sept. 29

Another Dispose-A-Med Day (National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative) will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10AM to 2PM. Tucson Police Department Santa Cruz Substation, located at 4410 S. Park Ave. is sponsoring a drop-off event where the public may dispose of their medications and prescriptions safely. (Santa Cruz Substation is located at NW corner of Park and Fair; entrance into parking lot is off of Fair.) This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications. Materials not eligible for the Dispose-A-Med day event are liquids and sharps. LPKNC, along with Arizonans for Prevention and CODAC, are partnering with TPD on Dispose-A-Med Day by helping provide information on substance abuse. Many thanks to TPD Operations South Santa Cruz Substation for sponsoring a site and to all the groups partnering with TPD.
