Drug Take Back Day is Saturday

The annual Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday. The event is a partnership between the state of Arkansas and the Drug Enforcement Agency. It is now in its 23rd year.

It will start at 10 a.m. and continue through 2 p.m. on Saturday at one-day locations set up around Arkansas.

The lone location in Maumelle is a 24-hour, seven day a week drop off location at the city’s police department at 2002 Murphy Drive.

The closest one-day site is in Mayflower.
