FRANKFORT, KY – Kentucky State Police (KSP) is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) on April 30, 2016 in a collaborative effort to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from home medicine cabinets.
Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in every KSP Post area across the state.
Sgt. Michael Webb, spokesperson for KSP, advised that the program is designed to be easy for citizens and offered the following tips for those interested in participating:
Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in original containers. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
