Law enforcement across Ga. to collect old pills

Posted:

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies are teaming up to collect expired, unused and unwanted pills.

The seventh National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be held Saturday. Georgians will be able to drop off the pills at sites across the state free of charge and with no questions asked.

The Drug Enforcement Administration says the event aims to prevent drug abuse and theft.

People across the country have turned in nearly 2.8 million pounds of prescription drugs during the DEA's six previous Take-Back Days. People can find the closest collection site by visiting the DEA's website, clicking on the "Got Drugs?" icon, and following the links to a database where they can search for their zip code.
