Artesian Partners With Police For National Take Back Day

Stocks in this article: ARTNA

Artesian Water has partnered with the Middletown Police Department for the National Take Back Prescription Drug Day, October 29, 2011, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Artesian and the police department encourage area residents to help prevent accidental overdose, abuse and theft of prescription drugs by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, residents may safely dispose of such medications at the collection site at the Middletown Police Department, 130 Hampden Road in Middletown. The service is free and anonymous—no questions asked.

Artesian President and CEO Dian C. Taylor emphasized that disposal of medications should never include flushing them down the toilet or pouring them down sink drains.

“The proper disposal of prescription drugs can play an essential role in keeping our water supply safe. We should all do our part to help the environment and one way is to participate in events such as this,” she said. “Properly disposing of these drugs not only helps keep our rivers and streams free of potentially hazardous elements, but it teaches our children that saving the environment is everyone’s responsibility. We look forward to partnering with the Middletown Police Department in this initiative and hope that you will join us in this effort.”

During the same event in September 2010 and April 2011, nearly 4,000 state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States collected more than 309 tons of pills.
