Sioux City Police Dept. takes part in national prescription drug take back

Posted:
SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (KTIV) -

The Sioux City Police Department set up stations at several locations in the city for the "spring national prescription drug take back" on Saturday. 

This program allows people to turn in their unused or expired prescription drugs.

And, police officers said it's important to properly dispose of them for several reasons.

"The main goal is to keep prescriptions out of the landfill and keep people from having extra prescriptions in their house, so that children in their house or pets can't get into their prescriptions," Alan Schmeckpeper, with the Sioux City Police Dept. said.

If you were unable to drop off your prescription drugs today, you can always bring them back to the pharmacy, so they can properly dispose of them.
