Kroger in Loganville participates in Drug Take Back Day on Oct. 26

Swing by with your unused and expired medications and grab a hot dog

Kroger and its partners, Cardinal Health and United Healthcare, have worked together for several years in sponsor ing community drug take-back events. This year, nearly 250 stores in 25 states are participating, including the one in the City of Loganville. Last year, more than 40,000 pounds of unused or expired medications were collected and properly disposed of by local law enforcement.

Saturday, October 26th from 10a m-2 pm in the Kroger parking lot (Kroger at Highway 81 and Highway 78 intersection) there will be an event area set up in the parking lot with the Loganville Police Department, a local DEA officer, and Kroger pharmacist Slade Johnson for the DEA Drug Take-Back Day. Any old, unused and expired medications can be turned in to be properly disposed of. Medications should be in their original bottle or a prescription bottle. No “sharps” objects such as needles, syringes or lancets can be included. It is important to dispose of medications that are not being used to prevent theft, misuse, poisoning, overdose or accidental consumption of these medications by other adults or small children. Kroger will be cooking hotdogs in the parking lot for those stopping by to turn in their expired or unused drugs.

If there are any questions about the Drug Take-Back Day, you can call the pharmacy at 678-639-4500 or visit the websites below.
