PA Resources Council, PA American Water To Host 3 Drug Take-Back Day Collection Events April 27 In Allegheny County

The PA Resources Council and PA American Water will host 3 Drug Take-Back Day collection events on April 27 in Allegheny County.
The events are being held in conjunction with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration 17th National Drug Take-Back Day.
“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 PRC and Pennsylvania American Water events will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at these locations:
-- Green Tree Borough Building, 10 W. Manilla Ave., Green Tree
-- Medical Rescue Team South, 315 Cypress Way, Mt. Lebanon
-- The Mall at Robinson (parking lot near Dick’s Sporting Goods),100 Robinson Centre Dr., Pittsburgh.
Drug Take-Back Day collection sites across the nation will accept pills and patches only; sites will not accept liquids, needles or sharps.
“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.”
