The U of A Police Department will accept all excess drugs and used needles, no questions asked, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Administrative Services Building (ADSB), 155 S. Razorback Rd.

For National Drug Takeback Day, UAPD wants to assist anyone who needs to get rid of expired, outdated or unwanted prescription drugs. Officers will be available on Saturday for you to drive up and drop off prescription drugs.

For those who can’t come by on Saturday, the Administrative Services Building, which houses UAPD, Transit and Parking, and IT Services, also has a permanent “Drug Drop-Box” that can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue. Proper disposal of unneeded drugs saves lives and protects the environment and our overall community. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is a free event for communities nationwide to properly dispose of old and unneeded medications safely and anonymously.

About the University of Arkansas Police Department: The UAPD, in partnership with the community we serve, is committed to protecting and serving the future of Arkansas and beyond by embracing the philosophy of community policing and by promoting a safe and secure environment through excellence, initiative, and integrity.
