160 collection sites in Maine for drug take back


More than 160 collection sites are available throughout Maine for residents to drop off unused, expired, or unwanted prescription medication this weekend. The US Drug Enforcement Administration’s national Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday. Maine sites will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Collection sites will be set up throughout the country to provide a safe and convenient way to dispose of prescription drugs. The day is also designed to raise awareness about the potential abuse of prescription medications. Law enforcement from State and local police and sheriff offices will staff the take-back locations.
