The city of Aspen is sponsoring a prescription drug take-back day on Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pitkin County Courthouse in Aspen. This is a free and anonymous event.
Police will accept tablets, capsules, and all other solid medications. They will not accept solutions, injectables, syringes and aerosols. Call 920-5040 to schedule an early drop-off.
Other drop-off locations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the 28th include the Basalt Police Department and the Church at Redstone.
Turning in unwanted prescription drugs helps keep local rivers clean because they are disposed of in an environmentally sensitive way.
