Prescription drug drop off

FAIRBANKS- Alaskans are invited to drop off unused medications for safe disposal tomorrow at various locations statewide. Local police and Alaska State Troopers will supervise the sites. Alaska's safe disposal event is part of a nationwide event coordinated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Last October, Americans turned in more than 647,000 pounds of prescription drugs across the nation.

The medication drop off points will be at the State Trooper office on Peger Road or at the Fairbanks Police Department on Cushman Street from 10 AM to 2 PM
