Drug Collection Day set for Saturday at Nugget Mall

Alaskans can turn in expired and unwanted prescription medication Saturday at collection sites around the state as part of National Drug Collection Day. Juneau’s site is in Nugget Mall and run by the Juneau Police Department. Capt. Ed Mercer said police will collect unwanted prescription drugs between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The exact location at the mall has not yet been set. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration sponsors the event to help make sure unwanted drugs are properly discarded. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation says drugs are collected anonymously. A list of collection sites in other areas can be found online at the National Take Back Initiative website (1.usa.gov/eB8TPU).
