Prescription Drug Drive | Events
If you have a medicine cabinet full of left over prescription drugs, the Coeur d' Alene Police Department would like you to safely dispose of them.
This Saturday you can hand over your prescription drugs at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
"There are many risks associated with storing prescription drugs that are not part of a current drug therapy," wrote Sgt. Christie Wood with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department
"The prescriptions may be outdated and not effectively treating the symptoms they are intended for. If prescription drugs are being stored and the person they are for is not taking them according to the prescription, it is possible they could be taken by mistake or potentially stolen. If prescription drugs are disposed of in our water supply, a potential for contamination to the water occurs," Wood added.
