The UALR Department of Public Safety is once again participating in the National Take Back Initiative, which encourages area residents to bring unused, unwanted, or expired prescription medications and dispose of them in a safe and ecologically sound way.
UALR Police will host a collection station from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 27, located in the UALR Plaza, 2801 S. University Ave., Suite 700. (see campus map)
The UALR station is one of hundreds across Arkansas where residents may bring medication to ensure it remains safely out of reach of children and potential abusers.
The initiative is quick and easy, according to UALR Detective Sharon Bowles Houlette. Residents may drive up and drop off medications without getting out of the car.
Law enforcement is the only entity legally authorized to receive substances from citizens.
For more information about the UALR collection station, contact Houlette at 501-569-8797.
