How National Take-Back Initiative works

Kennesaw Police host Drug Take-Back Day

Kennesaw Police host Drug Take-Back Day

On Saturday, April 29, from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. residents will be able to bring potentially risky expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs in for disposal.

In 2016 Milford Police Department collected over 1000 pounds of prescription medication at Drug Take Back events. The service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. Local residents can bring prescriptions to the CVS Pharmacy, located at 2782 Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the Take-Back Day event on April 29, go to the DEA Diversion website. This Drug Take Back Box will be available to receive prescription drugs starting on Monday, May 1, 2017.

The drop off location will be in the upper parking lot of the East Hampton Town Hall, 20 East High Street, East Hampton from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. No liquids, please. According to Myers, the National Prescription Drug Take-Back event addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.

Last October, the public turned in 731,269 pounds-almost 366 tons-of medication to the DEA and more than 4,000 of its community partners at nearly 5,200 collection sites nationwide. Overall, in its 12 previous Take Back events, the DEA and its partners have taken in over 7.1 million pounds (more than 3,500 tons) of pills. Officers say they'll take any prescription drugs at the police department from ten in the morning through two that afternoon.

Studies have shown that the majority of the abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends.

Throwing medication in the trash or flushing it down the toilet pose potential health and safety hazards.
