Mason Elementary School Announcement
Drug Take Back Day
 
Mason Police Department is taking back unwanted prescription drugs on Saturday, October 24, from 10 am to 2 pm at 38 Darling Hill Road.  Bring your pills for disposal OUTSIDE the Mason Police Station.  NO questions asked.
 
This event is Mason’s 9th year co-sponsoring with Mason Conservation Commission to prevent drugs from being flushed and ending up in our valuable water supply as ALL Mason homes have private wells. 
 
This provides the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.
 
Last fall, Americans turned in nearly 883,000 pounds of prescription drugs at nearly 6,300 sites operated by the DEA and almost 5,000 of its state and local law enforcement partners. DEA, along with its law enforcement partners, has now collected nearly 6,350 tons of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription medications since the inception of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative in 2010.
