PA Resources Council, PA American Water, Partners Host 3 Drug Take-Back Day Collection Events In Allegheny County

The PA Resources Council, PA American Water and other partners are holding 3 National Drug Take-Back Day collection events in Allegheny County on April 28.
Nationwide on Drug Take-Back Day, more than 5,000 collection sites enable patients, caregivers and pet owners to properly dispose of unwanted prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications at no cost.  
“This program provides a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications,” according to PRC Regional Director Justin Stockdale.  “People should not flush medications down the toilet or throw them in the trash since improper disposal poses a very real threat to the environment.”
The Allegheny County collection events will be held from 10:00 to 2:00--
-- Green Tree: Green Tree Borough Building, 10 W. Manilla Ave., Pittsburgh
-- Mt. Lebanon: Medical Rescue Team South, 315 Cypress Way, Pittsburgh
-- Robinson: The Mall at Robinson, Sears parking lot, 100 Robinson Centre Dr., Pittsburgh
“Building off of the success of past collections, PRC will again collaborate with the DEA and local law enforcement to provide residents with a safe and convenient option, thanks to the support of our many sponsors,” said Stockdale.  “PRC is proud to collaborate with PA American Water as well as the Borough of Green Tree, Municipality of Mt. Lebanon, Robinson Township, The Mall at Robinson and the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy.”
