National Prescription Drug Take Back Day October 26, 2019
The Morton Police Department will once again participate in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Individuals can bring their unused or expired prescription medication to the Morton Police Department, 375 W. Birchwood St., between the hours of 10:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M. for disposal.
This year, in addition to unused and expired prescription medication, the DEA is collecting vape pens or other e-cigarette devices. The batteries must be removed from the devices. The DEA is not responsible for removing the batteries from the devices. If the battery cannot be removed, individual consumers can check with large electronic chain stores who may accept the vape pen or e-cigarette devices for proper disposal.
