Collection Nets Over 633 Pounds Of Prescription Drugs

The Dubuque Drug Task Force along with the Asbury police department took in over 633 pounds of prescription and non-prescription medications and a little over 143 pounds of sharps over the weekend. The collection was all part of “National Take Back Day.” Items collected included vitamins, herbals, supplements, syringes and other items. People were able to bring their unwanted and expired medications to the parking lot at Sam’s Club. The items will be incinerated at a later date. If you missed Saturday’s event the sheriff’s office has a prescription drop box located in the front lobby of the law enforcement center on Iowa Street.
