Steve Ranson |Shirleen Spears left of United Blood Services asks Caroline Rebbetoy questions at the screening

For those looking for a safe way to dispose of expired or unused prescription or other medicines, the Allentown Health Bureau and police department will offer outlets next weekend during National Take Back Day.

Residents are asked to bring medications to the Williamsburg Police Department at 425 Armistead Avenue between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The service is free and being conducted in partnership with the Lehigh County District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. (The DEA can not accept liquids or needles or sharps only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous no questions asked.

The program is created to help prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding residences of potentially unsafe expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. "This is an easy, confidential and effective way of making sure some of these drugs - and in some cases, some relatively powerful ones - will be disposed of correctly".

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue.

This past April Americans turned in 450 tons (900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at nearly 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners.

The program is meant to reduce the risk of accidental poisonings and the abuse of prescription drugs, the agencies noted in a news release. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion misuse, and abuse. The previous 13 events have altogether collected 8,103,363 pounds (4,052 tons) of prescription drugs. "That's why it was great to see thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in - safely and anonymously - a record amount of prescription drugs".
