On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. the Johnson County Sheriff's Department in collaboration with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give residents the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially risky expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
Dispose of your unused prescription medications safely by dropping the drugs off from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Sheriff's Office in Murfreesboro or TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center in Smyrna.
Last fall, Americans turned in 466 tons (more than 932,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at nearly 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners.
Accepted items include prescription and over the counter medications. The take back days are held twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall.
People who want to dispose of the medications may simply drive up to either location. "National Drug Take Back Day is a fantastic opportunity for Missourians to clean out their medicine cabinets and discard old or unwanted medicines".
