The Windermere Police Department is hosting a DEA Prescription Drug Takeback this weekend.
The event offers locals the opportunity to turn in unused or expired medications for safe disposal.
Now in its twenty-third year, the anonymous disposal of unneeded medications is possible at more than 4,000 local drop-off locations nationwide.
DEA and its partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches and other forms of prescription drugs. Collection sites will not accept syringes, sharps and illicit drugs. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. The cap must be tightly sealed to prevent leakage. The event will also continue to accept vaping devices and cartridges provided lithium batteries are removed.
The collection will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the WPD, 614 Main St.
