Take Back Program

Maryville Public Safety and the Drug Enforcement Administration are offering the Maryville public another opportunity to get rid of unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

The 'take back' program allows people to bring their pills to an authorized entity for proper disposal. The service is anonymous and saw a return of 244 tons of prescription drugs last year. Maryville Public Safety Officer, Jessica Wilson, says the risk of keeping these drugs in the home is both a personal and public safety issue.
