That drawer or bathroom cabinet may have become a forgotten dumping ground for old prescription painkillers, antibiotics or sedatives to you, but it could pose a danger to loved ones — or lure thieves.
This Saturday, the Draper Police Department, as part of the National Take Back Initiative, is offering you a way to safely dispose of those old, expired, unused and potentially deadly prescription drugs.
Partnered with the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, Draper police invites the public to bring their unwanted medications for disposal to the Smith’s Food & Drug at 212 East 12300 South in Draper.
The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
The effort is also taking place at several other locations throughout the Wasatch Front. Here are some of them:
