The Dunwoody Police Department is teaming up with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for a National Prescription Drug Take Back event.
This is a prescription drug take-back program where the public can dispose of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications to keep them out of the wrong hands.
“We are pleased at the response of the American people once again, and we thank them for participating and contributing to the battle against prescription drug abuse,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. “While a uniform system for prescription drug disposal is being finalized, we will continue to sponsor these important take-back opportunities as a service to our communities.
From 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, Dunwoody residents are invited to bring their unwanted medications to the front lobby of the Dunwoody Police Department, 41 Perimeter Center East, Suite 100.
Items not being accepted include needles/sharps, syringes with needles, thermometers, IV bags, bloody or infectious waste, personal care products, empty containers, inhalers, medical equipment and hydrogen peroxide.
