6,000 Pounds Of Prescriptions Meds Turned In

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Public health officials say residents turned in more than 6,000 pounds of prescription medications during Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.
    
The Department of Health and Social Services said Monday that last month's take-back netted the second-highest total since Drug Take-Back Days began.
    
Residents gave up unwanted or expired medications, which officials said will help prevent abuse and theft and reduce water pollution by having the medications safely disposed of.
