Tennessee Tech University Establishes Prescription Take Back Box

Nov 12,2018

The Tennessee Tech Police Department has partnered with Power of Putnam in order to install a take-back medication box located in the lobby of the police station on campus. This take-back box will allow students and employees to properly dispose of prescription medications. The police department is hosting a Take Back event on Saturday, October 27. Announcements have been made campus wide to promote this event, especially in student residences, the library, and the University Center, in order to make students aware of this resource. Tech police officers will be available to assist students and answer any questions about proper prescription medication disposal.
