Atlanta Police Department to participate in the 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
All Zones collecting unused or expired medication on Saturday, September 26

Thế giới cáThe Atlanta Police Department is participating in the 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, September 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Department is encouraging citizens to participate by donating unused or expired medication at the locations listed below.

Organized by the US Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day provides a safe and convenient means of disposing of prescription drugs. Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

Thế giới cáDuring past operations, the Atlanta Police Department has collected more than 89 pounds of prescription pills for the National Take Back Initiative.
