Another planned “Take-Back Day” this Saturday in Berkeley County is designed to rid homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
The public is encouraged to collect and turn in outdated prescription medicines for disposal.
Medications can be brought to either the Sheriff’s Office at 223 North Live Oak Drive in Moncks Corner; or the Goose Creek Magistrate’s Office at 303-B Goose Creek Boulevard, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked, and sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, sheriff’s office spokesman Dan Moon said.
Americans participating in the DEA’s three previous Take-Back Days turned in nearly a million pounds of prescription drugs nationwide at nearly 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,000 state and local law enforcement partners.
