SNELLVILLE – The Snellville Police Department will be participating in the National Drug Take Back event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Snellville Police Department, 2315 Wisteria Drive.
The event is designed to allow residents a safe way to dispose of prescription drugs that would be dangerous in the hands of children and potentially abused by others.
Officers will set up a drive-thru style drop off so residents can drive up to the designated drop-off area to participate in the event. No needles or syringes can be accepted.
SPD has collected more than a ton of unwanted prescription drugs while participating in this program.
For more information about the event contact Lt. A.L. Sullivan at 770-985-3555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Monday, Councilman Bobby Howard presented a proclamation to the SPD and PCOM School of Pharmacy at Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine students who have participated in the program for putting on the event numerous times each year.
