DEA to hold prescription drug take back day Saturday across SC

Law enforcement agencies across the Lowcountry and the nation will give you the opportunity to clear out unwanted and expired prescription drugs from your medicine cabinet Saturday.

The DEA said it collected 450 tons of drugs during its last take back event in April, and more than 8.1 million pounds of pills during its last 13 take back events.

Medicines left in home cabinets can lead to misuse and abuse of the drugs. Liquid drugs are accepted, but not in syringes or other sharp containers.

Penn State beats MI , 42-13

The Orland Park Police Department takes back drugs four days a week, Monday through Thursday 9 a.m.to 1 p.m. throughout the year in addition to the one-day national event. "Getting leftover medicines out of the medicine cabinets and safely destroyed keeps them from falling into the wrong hands".

The collection stations can not accept liquid medication, medications that contain iodine, medical sharps or needles, thermometers and inhalers.

The nonmedical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.

Pills don't have to be an opioid to harm or kill someone who takes a medicine that's not prescribed for them.

Items that are not allowed include illegal drugs, needles/sharps, inhalers, aerosol cans, bio-hazardous materials (anything containing a bodily fluid or blood), personal care products (shampoo, soaps, lotions and sunscreens), household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, oil, and gas) and mercury thermometers. Putting medications in the trash is not proper disposal, and flushing medications down the toilet can also create poor effects on public health and the environment.
