Cassville PD Drug Take Back Day scheduled

Cassville Police Department is again participating in the D.E.A. Prescription Take Back Day.
The event will be held Saturday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The address to drop off the medication is 300 Main St., Cassville City Hall/Cassville Police Department. The entrance will be in the back of the building using the Council Chamber door.
The Prescription Take Back Day is to help people to properly dispose of unused medication. Proper disposal of medication helps to protect the environment and keeps the medicine from being flushed into our water systems.
This also helps keep the medication out of the hands of people who do not have a prescription or need for the medication, but want to use it for recreational use only.
"We want to encourage people to take the time to clean out their medicine drawers and cabinets and properly dispose of their unused medicine," said Dana Kammerlohr, Cassville police chief. "We also accept over-the-counter medication."
Inhalers, illegal drugs or sharp objects (i.e. syringes/needles) will not be accepted. No medications can be accepted from medical clinics, pharmacies or veterinary clinics.
