Drug Take-Back Day Sets Records


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) Here are the results from April's Drug Take–Back Day, a nationwide event.

In Idaho, 26 collection sites resulted in a state record–setting 2.4 tons of prescription drugs removed from the streets.

Our station's parking lot was one of those sites, featuring a partnership we have with the Twin Falls Police.

Altogether, states in the northwest turned in 15.9 tons, the second highest ever for the region.

Remember, the Twin Falls Police Department makes a disposal bin available in its lobby year–round.
