Mercer County residents can dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs during the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015. The program held each spring and fall, is conducted by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
Mercer County residents can safely dispose of unused and expired prescription medicines by bringing them to the parking lot in front of the Mercer County Administration Building at 640 South Broad Street in Trenton, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible method of disposing of prescription drugs, while educating the public about the potential abuse of medications. The safe-disposal program helps keep prescription drugs from falling into the hands of those who might make them available for abuse and prevents them from being flushed
into the water supply or thrown into the trash and easily found.
