The Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office is participating this Saturday in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back initiative. The program is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Unwanted medication can be disposed of in its original container or by removing the medicine from its container and disposing of it directly into the collection boxes. If disposing of the container as well, officials say to remove any identification from the prescription label.
The Take-Back will take place at the Sangamon County Public Health Building at 2833 South Grand Avenue East from 10am to 2pm on Saturday.
