The Milford Police Department and the Milford Prevention Council, in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration, recently hosted a Drug Take Back Day at the Milford Senior Center, and collected a lot of unwanted prescriptions.

During the four-hour event, 210 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs were collected from the public as part of a nationwide initiative to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft by ridding homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

The drop off location was organized as a drive-through, where members from the Milford Prevention Council volunteered to collect the drugs.
