BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and participating local law enforcement agencies will hold a national drug “take-back” day Saturday across the nation to offer residents a way to dispose of unwanted or outdated drugs of all kinds.
You know, we all have them, medicine cabinets full of old, or half-full bottles of drugs.
It’s dangerous to flush them down the toilet (they can pollute the waterways) and if you throw them away they can end up in the hands of criminals or even worse, children.
That’s why each year, the DEA host a day for residents to get rid of these drugs at local “drop-off” locations throughout the county.
This year’s event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at various locations. There are no questions asked when you drop off your drugs.
Locations this year include:
Palm Bay Hospital, 1425 Malabar Road, S.E., Palm Bay
The West Melbourne Police Department, 2290 Minton Road, West Melbourne
Viera Hospital, 8745 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne
Walgreens, 1098 SR A1A, Satellite Beach.
