Drug Take Back is Saturday, April 26, 2014 10 am-2 pm
The Eureka Police Department will be hosting a Prescription Drug Take Back event on April 26, 2014, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Eureka Police building, 120 City Hall Drive, Eureka, Mo.
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
In addition to participating in this year’s collection you should know;
The Eureka Police Department has a prescription drug collection box in the lobby area of the Police Department located at 120 City Hall Drive. This drug collection box was the first year-round prescription medication collection offered in St. Louis County, and is available to residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The drop-off program is a free, anonymous, no questions-asked initiative that prevents prescription drug abuse and theft by ridding homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse.
Items that can be placed in the secure drug drop box include narcotics, non-narcotics, over the counter medications, and veterinary medications. Items that should not be placed in the drop box include needles or sharps, liquid forms of prescription medication, or bio-hazard materials.
Since placing the Drug Take Back Box in our lobby in May of 2011, the Eureka Police Department has collected over 1000 lbs. of medication.
For more information about the Drug Take Back program, you can call Chief Michael Wiegand at the Eureka Police Department 636-938-6600at 636-938-6600.
What is the Drug Take Back Program?
A program provided by the Eureka Police Department and in partnership with United States Drug Enforcement Agency.
To increase awareness of prescription and over the counter drug abuse issues facing our area’s youth and to help eliminate prescription drugs from homes that are no longer being used. The medicine cabinet is the most popular place for medications of abuse. This program will provide a safe place for disposal of prescription drugs that are no longer needed.
No medications from businesses such as pharmacies or doctor’s offices will be accepted. Only medications from individuals can be accepted for this program.
Help prevent wildfires!
A combination of strong winds, low humidity, dry conditions, and warming temperatures this time of year has the potential to create explosive wildfires. The main cause of wildfires is improper burning of debris such as trash and brush piles. Please help prevent wildfires!
The Missouri Department of Conservation urges people not to conduct outdoor burning during times when grasses, brush and other fire fuel are very dry, humidity is low and weather is windy. Check with local fire departments regarding burn bans that may be in place. Call 911 at the first sign of a fire getting out of control and help stop arson by calling Operation Forest Arson at 800-392-1111.

DID YOU KNOW:
During the spring months in the St. Louis Area, we have many days of high temperatures, strong winds, and low humidity. These factors and intermittent rainfall can lead to dangerous grass and brush fires.
Per Missouri Department of Natural Resources Regulations-
St. Louis Metropolitan Area: Open burning of trees, tree leaves or brush is allowed only in areas outside of incorporated municipalities from Sept. 16 to April 14 of each calendar year. These brush piles are limited to a base of 16 square feet and the burning is allowed from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m..
We always ask that Eureka Fire Protection District residents contact Engine House 1 at 636-938-5505 before burning so we may know about it first. Eureka Fire Protection District does not issue burn or bonfire permits, but we may advise you not to burn at any particular time due to conditions.
For more information, you can download a hotsheet with safety tips and state and local regulatory rules on open burning.
