Drug Take Back Event in Bangor This Friday and Saturday
Yesterday was 4 20. But these are different drugs. If you have expired prescription or non prescription past good date medications in your home, it’s time to safely clean out the medicine cabinet, kitchen drawer or cupboard and bedroom nightstands and properly dispose of said meds.
These drugs should not fall into the wrong hands, nor should they simply be flushed down the toilet or thrown into the general trash. It’s Earth Day tomorrow. Don’t even think it.
This Friday and Saturday Bangor Police and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting their annual event to properly dispose of unwanted and expired medications in the parking lot of The Airport Mall in Bangor. The hours are from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
In addition, maybe it’s time to sift through documents that you no longer want to keep but the material contains sensitive information so you don’t want to simply recycle them (Earth Day is tomorrow) or simply throw them away, a shredding truck will be at the same site on Friday from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m.
And since we’re still in the 2020/2021 season, COVID 19 precautions will be in effect for the Drug Take Back Event.
