Drug Take-Back Bergenfield Nets 115 pounds

National Take-Back Day was a success again in Bergenfield.
Coordinated with the Drug Enforcement Agency along with
local, county and state police agencies, the program aims to
provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of
disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the
general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
Residents of Bergenfield turned in 115 pounds of unused,
expired or unwanted medicines to the police department's
disposal boxes on Saturday, April 26, between 10 am and
2 pm. Thank you to all who took part and contributed to the
safe disposals and made 115 pounds of prescription medicine
no longer available for abuse.
