National Drug Take Back Day this Saturday, October 26!

The Swatara Township Police Department will be teaming up with Walmart this Saturday for the DEA’s National Drug Take Back Day.  On October 26th between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, residents and non-residents of Swatara Township can bring their unused or expired medication to the Harrisburg Walmart for safe disposal.  Medication can include prescription medication and over the counter medication.  The Swatara Township Police Department will be out at the Walmart, located at 6535 Grayson Road in Swatara Township, in front of the store for easy drop off.  This program is completely anonymous and therefore no personal information is collected.  It is suggested that you remove all labels on any prescription bottles prior to taking them to the drop off location.  All medications are accepted EXCEPT needles (used and unused).  Liquids are acceptable IF they are in a sealed container.  Drugs will be collected and then forwarded to the DEA for proper and safe disposal.  This program is a great way to ensure your medication does not end up in the wrong hands as well as in our waterways and landfills.  Please take the time to participate in this important initiative.  We hope to see you there!
