Drug Take Back

On Saturday 26 October the Montclair Lions supported our 3rd successful semi-annual DEA Drug Take Back Day collection of prescription drugs and medications.  In only four hours hundreds of pounds of pills and medications were separated from several hundred pill bottles and recyclable paper products.  The pills and medications were taken by an onsite DEA Special Agent for destruction at the DEA headquarters.  The pill bottles, after removing personal information and cleaning, will be recycled and used by Mission Doctors overseas.  The Montclair Lions were the only Service organization involved in the collection statewide.  The next nationwide collection is Saturday 27 April 2019.
