[ARCHIVED] National Take-Back Initiative April 28, 2018 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

 National Take-Back Initiative 

April 28, 2018 10:00 am – 2:00 pm 

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in partnership with the City of Athens and the Athens Police Department would like to invite our area community to participate in the 15th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday April 28, 2018 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the Elks Lodge parking lot, 600 West Union Street. 

On this date, the Athens Police Department and DEA will again be collecting potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs at sites nationwide. 

Previous national efforts were very successful, thanks to local agency partnerships with the DEA. We would like to encourage even greater participation this spring, and we would like to count on our community to become involved with having these prescription medications disposed of properly. Thank you!
