Prescription drug drop-off April 26

The Guttenberg Police Department will sponsor its annual prescription drug drop-off on Saturday, April 26, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. 

The alley behind the Guttenberg Municipal Building will be designated as the drop-off point and will be set up for one-way traffic.

Purpose of the event is to allow area residents to safely dispose of unused prescription medications.

In conjunction with the event,  people can also safely dispose of needles or sharps at the site. The collection is being sponsored by Guttenberg Municipal Hospital.

A shred-a-thon is also planned  as a way to allow sensitive documents to be safely and securely disposed of.  Iowa Senior Medicare Patrol is a sponsoring agency for this event.

Residents are asked to mark their calendars for April 26 and to watch for more information in an upcoming issue.
