Happy Valley Youth Council to hold RX Drug Take Back Event
The Happy Valley Youth Council is once again gearing up for its annual Rx Drug Take Back event. Offered as a way to not only raise awareness on the dangers of medications getting into the wrong hands, but this event also highlights the Youth Council’s commitment to encouraging a safe community. Over the years, the event has collected well over 5,000 pounds of drug items and ensured their safe disposal through the support of community partners.
The Happy Valley Youth Council will be holding their Annual RX Drug Take Back Event on Saturday, April 22 from 10am to 2 pm in the City Hall parking lot.
Intra-venous solutions, injectables, syringes or medical waste are NOT to be collected. Any type of prescription and/or over the counter medications are acceptable collections – no questions asked. Simply drive by and drop off your unwanted or outdated prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, or drugs.
The youth council’s calendar runs in concurrence with the school year, from September to June. During these months, meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 4:30 pm in the council chamber at city hall.
