IM-K Community Schools preschool registration underway

IRON MOUNTAIN — On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson, the Iron Mountain Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration will host DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at the Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson Medical Office Building, Main Entrance.

They will collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs.

For more than a decade, the event has helped Americans easily rid their homes of unneeded medications–those that are old, unwanted, or expired–that too often become a gateway to addiction.

Take Back Day offers free and anonymous disposal of unneeded medications.

It has removed 8,950 tons of medication from circulation since its inception. They will not accept syringes, sharps, and illicit drugs.

Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. The cap must be tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
