Drop Off Unwanted Prescription Drugs Saturday, No Questions Asked

The San Luis Obispo CHP collected 280 pounds of expired or unused prescription drugs.

Throughout the year people can drop-off expired medications in the lobby of the Public Safety Building at 300 Kansas City Street from 7 A.M.to 5 P.M. The agency is one of several Central Florida law enforcement agencies participating in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The drugs were then boxed up and taped shut by Portland police officers, who carted them away for safe disposal.

For those who couldn't make it to Saturday's take-back, police say there are other ways to get rid of medications. The program is free and no questions are asked.

There are an average of 70 pills per adult in a household, according to Kozal. So, its prescribed medications, something they're not comfortable with having around the house.

"Thank God that I can bring them here and I know they won't hurt anybody and they'll be disposed of properly", said Dorothy Fleischhauer, a Bartlett resident.

Meridian, Marion and Meridian Community College police along with Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department collected 100 pounds of prescription medicines at the take-back.

The medication drop boxes are open Monday through Friday. The box is similar to the Red Med Boxes.

Volunteer nurses from Maine Medical Center saw a steady stream of business Saturday at the Back Cove parking lot in Portland as dozens of people dropped off their unwanted and unused prescription drugs.
