Jackson Police Accepting Unwanted Prescription and Over-The-Counter Medications

Saturday, October 28 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The goal of the day is 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.   

A Drug Take Back Day event will be held at the Jackson Police Department on Saturday, October 28 from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Look for the tent on the west side of the Police Department garage. All you have to do is pull up and an officer will come to your car to assist you.

You do not need to be a Village of Jackson resident in order to drop off medications. 

You are encouraged to bring prescription and over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays, inhalers, creams, vials and pet medication.
