is participating in a national Drug Enforcement Administration program by providing a booth for citizens to drop off unused, old or unwanted medications for proper disposal.
“This event has been very successful in the past. Last year far exceeded our expectations on the amount of prescription medicines that were dropped off,” Capt. Jeff Black said in a release.
"Most drugs can cause serious illness or even be fatal if used improperly," police said. "Medications thrown away in the garbage pose the risk of someone obtaining them to use or sell. Many flush medications down the toilet. Doing so could contaminate our water supply."
Police say disposing of medications properly will protect you, your family and the community.
The pill drop is set for Saturday, Oct. 29, in the parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Items labeled “bio-hazard” and items such as needles/syringes will not be accepted.
