DEA National Drug Take Back Campaign – Oct 27

Hello Steller Community,

It is time for DEA’s National Drug Take Back – 
Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends. You could be a drug dealer and not even now it.

  • Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription of a doctor’s supervision.
  • The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.
  • The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends – and the home medicine cabinet.
  • Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply.
  • Take-back programs are the best way to dispose of old drugs. But if a program is not available:
    • Take the meds out of their bottles;
    • Mix them with something unappealing like used kitty litter or coffee grounds;
    • Seal them in a bag or disposable container, and throw that away.
  • For more information on prescription drug abuse, go to:

Be safe and not sorry, have a great week.

There is quite a collection in the Steller Lost & Found bins and the items would love to make it back home.  Please stop by Tuesday or Wednesday next week and check out the slew of items we have and if they are yours, please take them home.  Items not collected by Thursday May 31 will be donated  to charity.

We also have two bicycles left from Troy’s intensive.  If they are not picked up, they will be locked up in a secure location over the summer.  Please don’t be without your bike for the summer and come and pick it up!
