Carrboro, NC – The Carrboro Police Department is sponsoring a Drug Take Back event on September 27, 2012, from 3 pm until 7 pm at Carrboro Town Commons at 301 W. Main St.
The community is invited to drop-off unwanted or expired prescription or non-prescription medications for environmentally safe disposal. Participants may remain anonymous and no inventory will be kept of turned in medications. Please note that no needles will be accepted at this event. Prescription drug abuse is a concern to all in the community, especially when it comes to teens and young adults.
Disposing of unwanted medications safely can be difficult, especially when considering water quality issues. This free event serves both purposes – removing drugs of abuse from the community and protecting the safety and quality of the water supply. Please come out and drop off your unwanted medications on September 27. For more information, contact Lt. Chris Atack (919) 918-7407
