No, they are not coming for them. You have to drop them off.

It is another Drug collecting date. DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) National Drug Take Back.

Dates are Friday October 28th from 7am to 5pm, and Saturday October 29th from 10 am to 2 pm.

Both days will take place at the Airport Mall Parking Lot, by Hannafords at 1129 Union Street in Bangor.

This event is sponsored by the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department and the Bangor Police Department.

In today’s world we should be concerned where our unused prescriptions and drugs end up. All unwanted or unneeded medications may be dropped off for proper disposal at this event.

And no, you shouldn’t just flush them down the toilet. We don’t want those drugs in the water system.

The ‘take back’ is totally free, and if you need it to be, completely anonymous. Simply drive up, and hand off last year’s expired pills or more recent unused prescriptions and drive away.

Remember, those potentially harmful drugs could end up in the wrong hands, including an addict’s hands.

Or an innocent child’s hands.

Also at the same event, at the same times, Maine Savings & AARP will be sponsoring a Record Shredding truck.

Just like those old pills, you don’t want those personal documents and statements or bills with financial information to fall into the wrong hands either.  Have those docs shredded for free.
