The DEA will be collecting potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction at sites nationwide.
The service is free and anonymous.
Local residents can bring prescriptions to the city jail located at 2539 J.O. Stephenson Ave. in Kennesaw from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The amount of prescription drugs turned in by the American public during past Take-Back Day events speaks volumes about the need to develop a convenient way to rid homes of unwanted or expired prescription drugs,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart in a press release from the city of Kennesaw.
“DEA remains hard at work to establish just such a drug disposal process, and will continue to offer take-back opportunities until proper regulations are in place.”
