October 23, 2021 — The Green River Police Department will be conducting a Prescription Drug Take-Back Day today. Green River PD will have a drop-off location from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Green River Smith’s store.
Residents can safely dispose of unused or out prescription drugs and medications during the event. The GRPD is asking that only prescription medications be dropped off. No Sharps, please.
According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. In addition, the study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
