Drug Take-Back Day slated in Cranberry

Unwanted drugs can be dropped off at the township municipal center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Township police will be on hand to collect the items.
The Cranberry take back event is in addition to the drop-off drug collection box in the police department lobby, which is available anytime during normal business hours.
No questions will be asked of anyone bringing items in for disposal and no identification is needed for either type of collection. All collected medicine will be turned over to the DEA for destruction.
All forms of medication — including tablets, capsules, pills, liquids and ointments — will be accepted. They can be deposited either loose or inside their original containers.
