Iberia Parish To Collect Unused Prescription Drugs

Iberia Parish residents can give back unused or unwanted prescription drugs on April 26 for the no-questions-asked National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office are continuing the program for a fourth year after collecting more than 1,700 tons of expired or unwanted prescription medications.

Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal says unused medications create health and safety concerns while increasing the probability of accidental ingestion, theft, misuse and abuse.

All prescriptions collected are turned over to the DEA for disposal.

Only pills and other solids, like patches, can be brought to the collection sites. Liquids, needles or other sharp objects will not be accepted.

The Iberia Parish drop-off site will be at the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office Patrol Center located at 459 E. Main St. Medications will be collected from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 26.

For more information, contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-369-3714.
