Drug drop set for Oct. 26
On October 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the YPA coalition, Jasper County Sheriff’s Department, Newton Police Department, Newton/Sully/Colfax fire departments and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its seventh opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
Medications may be disposed of from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 26 at the fire departments in Newton, Sully and Colfax. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last April, Americans turned in 371 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. In its six previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners took in over 2.8 million pounds— more than 1,400 tons — of pills.
