The NAU Police Department is supporting next weekend’s Dump the Drugs and Shred-A-Thon event where outdated and unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs can be disposed of properly.

The event is aimed at protecting against improperly discarded medications that can make their way into the water supply.

Additionally, up to two bankers’ size boxes can be dropped off for free shredding.

Collections will be taken from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Law Enforcement Administrative Facility parking lot, 911 E. Sawmill Road.

For information, call (928) 779-5361.
