Woodstock Police Department to host National Drug Take-Back Day event

WOODSTOCK – On April 27, the Woodstock Police Department will participate in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration National Drug Take-Back Day event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the public parking lot (east side of the building) at 656 Lake Ave.

Any and all prescription or over-the-counter drugs will be accepted if they are in pill form (no liquids or syringes.)

There is no minimum or maximum.

The drugs will be accepted no questions asked and will then be properly destroyed by the DEA in an environmentally safe fashion.

The service is free and privacy is protected. Donors don’t even have to get out of their vehicles; officers will be on hand to assist.

During the first five take-back events, the Woodstock Police Department collected a total of 562 pounds of unwanted drugs. The nationwide total stands at 2 million pounds.

For information, call Tamara Reed at 815-338-6787 or visit www.nationaltakebackday.com.
