Bangor Police To Collect Unwanted Drugs This Weekend

The Bangor Police Department will offer a chance this weekend to get rid of your expired or unwanted drugs.

I’ll resist the urge to compare this to trick-or-treating for adults, and just point out that the timing is purely coincidental. The officers won’t be going door to door, but will be hanging out at the Airport Mall, waiting for folks to stop by with their old and/or unwanted medications. This will include anything you no longer need, like expired aspirin, or prescriptions that you won’t use. Efforts like this go a long way toward keeping prescription pills out of the water supply and also away from children and people they’re not meant for.

The Bangor Police Department, in conjunction with the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, will hold the Drug Take Back event this Friday and Saturday at the Airport Mall, Union Street in Bangor. Representatives will be at the mall Friday from 7 a.m to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Find a drug take-back event near you by entering your zip code at this site.

As an added bonus, folks can bring sensitive documents that they want disposed of safely. From 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, there will be a shredding truck to dispose of old bills, files, or any other paperwork that you don’t want to just throw in a trash can. There’s no charge for the drug drop-off or the shredding.
