Saturday April 24th, is National Drug Takeback Day. Bucks County’s local officials and police are going all-out.
From 10 a.m. through 2 p.m., 47 locations throughout Bucks will be collecting unused and unwanted medication.
Most police departments will have a drop box at their headquarters. Some other spots are also participating like St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown and Poquessing Middle School in Lower Southampton.
Three locations will also be hosting Narcan Drive-Thru events to give out Narcan kits. In Lower Bucks, the Narcan drive-thru will be held at the Bensalem GIANT on Street Road.
Since 2010, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office says it’s collected north of 152,000 pounds of unused medication. This is more than any other county.
