800 Pounds of Meds Collected at Arvada’s Drug Take-Back Site

 A chilly and windy spring morning didn't keep hundreds of people from visiting the second annual Prescription Drug Take Back event in Arvada and across the nation on Saturday, April 30, 2011.

Members of the Drug Enforcement Administration joined representatives from the Arvada Police Department to collect expired and unused over the counter and prescription medications.

This drive thru service helped residents rid their cabinets of everything from old antibiotics to cold medicines to antacids and everything in between.

In the end more than 800 pounds worth of prescription medications and other over the counter drugs were collected and destroyed from Arvada's site.
