The next DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Day is October 27th from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM at the D.A.R.E. Office in Washington Square Shopping Center (5338-D George Washington Mem. Hwy.). The Beautification Committee will also sponsor a shred event at that location from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
Citizens can also bring their plastic bags for recycling (we’ll set up our Trex boxes there). Lots of citizens brought their prescription medications in plastic bags and we collected them.
Several people asked about disposal of Sharps/Needles during the last Drug Take Back Day. The sheriff’s office cannot accept those, and recommends that citizens consult with their medical provider about proper disposal as disposal methods are not regulated and we have no protocol for disposal.
