JOHNS CREEK, Ga. Protect your family and the environment by dropping off expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical drugs Saturday, Oct. 26, during National Take-Back Day in Johns Creek.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., anyone with expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medicines (no needles, please) can dispose of them anonymously at a JCPD drop-off booth in the Target parking lot, 5850 State Bridge Road.

The event, sponsored by the Johns Creek Police Department and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, is intended to reduce prescription drug abuse and reduce the risk of prescription drugs entering the groundwater, rivers and streams. The program also helps people comply with the law regarding disposal of prescription drugs.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, taking expired medications can be dangerous. Over time, the composition of drugs can change, affecting their potency and making them risky and unreliable.

At a Take-Back Day last April, JCPD officers collected about 280 pounds of prescription drugs.

For information, call JCPD Community Services at 678-474-1607.
