National Drug Take Back Day, which is sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), is Saturday, April 28, 2028. Local law enforcement agencies will provide a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from the home medicine cabinet. Using pharmaceutical drugs without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse.
The City of Monroe Police Department announced that “in a commitment to keep our community safe and healthy, ANYONE can drop off their expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs at the Monroe Police Department from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.” (Note: NO LIQUIDS will be accepted.)
Monroe Police Department is located at 140 Blaine Street, Monroe, GA 30655.
