The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) will be working with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) on its national “Take-Back Days”

On April 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., DPS will be partnering with the DEA and 58 other Arizona law enforcement agencies in a campaign aimed at reducing the number of expired, unused and unwanted prescription medications possessed by the public. With the rise of prescription drug abuse and the link to impaired driving, it is the goal of this operation to decrease the chances of the drugs being abused and leading to serious consequences. This service is free to the public and completely anonymous.
Over the past three “Take-Back Days”, more than 18,300 pounds of prescription drugs were dropped off at more than 95 locations throughout the state.
DPS drop-off sites include the following locations:
2102 W. Encanto Blvd. Phoenix, Arizona 85009
11101 W. Peoria Ave. Youngtown, Arizona 85363
6401 S. Tucson Blvd. Tucson, Arizona 85706
2319 E. Andy Devine Rd. Kingman, Arizona 86401
1111 Commerce Dr. Prescott, Arizona 86305
2111 E. Gila Ridge Rd. Yuma, Arizona 85365
3756 W. Fry Blvd. Sierra Vista, Arizona 85635
410 W. Centennial Blvd. Casa Grande, Arizona 85222
Although we appreciate the public’s participation, the locations will not be able to accept glass containers, inhalers, intravenous (IV) solutions, injection medications or syringes. All other over-the-counter medications, as well as supplements, can be turned in.

Arizona State Forestry celebrates 140th National Arbor Day Friday, April 27

Phoenix, Arizona, 24 April 2012 – The Arizona State Forester, Scott Hunt and the Arizona State Forestry Division (ASFD) will celebrate the 140th National Arbor Day on April 27, 2012 at 9:00AM in collaboration with the Arizona Nursery Association, Arizona Community Tree Council, and the Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scout Council. The public is invited to join in the festivities.
The celebration is scheduled to occur at the Wesley Bolin Plaza (1700 W Washington St. Phoenix, AZ 85007) and will include the reading of the Governor’s Arizona Arbor Day Proclamation by Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, and the planting of eleven trees.
Presentations will be given by the Arizona State Forester – Scott Hunt, Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scout Council CFO – Carol Ackerson, Arizona Community Tree Council Executive Director – Conni Ingallina, and Arizona Nursery Association Executive Director – Cheryl Goar.
The Girl Scouts are also celebrating their Centennial Birthday in 2012 and will take an active role in planting trees downtown. Ten trees will be planted to represent each decade, and a large 36” box tree will be planted and designated as Arizona’s official “Centennial” tree.
Trees planted at the Wesley Bolin Plaza will be a part of the Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scouts’ Centennial tree planting project: Celebrating the Past, Planting for our Future in collaboration with the Arizona Community Tree Council. The goal of Celebrating the Past, Planting for our Future is to increase the number of trees planted throughout Arizona, to improve air quality at outdoor common spaces and to increase knowledge about the benefits of trees by planting 100 live trees throughout the state.
The Centennial Celebration Plantings are sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, and the project is provided to educate youth on the care and planting of trees while celebrating Arizona’s Centennial.
The Arbor Day Celebration will include hands-on activities (tree planting), education opportunities, both onsite and in the form of handouts on tree selection options, planting and other resource materials.
The Arizona State Forestry Division would like to thank the Arizona Nursery Association, Arizona Community Tree Council, Arizona Cactus Pine Girl Scout Council, and the United States Forest Service for serving as partners in this Arizona Arbor Day celebration.
