The Laramie County Sheriff's Department will be at three locations this coming Saturday (October 26th) from 10:00AM through 2:00PM to take back any un-wanted, unused, prescription, or over the counter drugs. The Sheriff's Department will join others in continuing this successful program.
The three locations are Town and Country Pharmacy at 514 South Greeley Highway, Laramie County Fire District #2 at 5800 North College, and the Pine Bluffs Town Hall at 200 Main Street.
This Sheriff's Department has taken in over 700 pounds of unused and unwanted prescription drugs since the program inception. The purpose of these Drug Take Back Day's is to allow citizens to safely dispose of unused or unwanted prescription drugs in an environmentally safe manner and keep those drugs out of the hands of unauthorized persons or juveniles.
Drugs that have been taken in have ranged from over the counter drugs to narcotic prescription pills and liquids.
Once again, no illegal drugs, sharps, thermometers, oxygen containers, radioactive materials, pressurized containers, or chemotherapy drugs will be accepted.
For further information you can contact Lieutenant Kevin James at (307) 633-4773.
