MILTON, Ga. – The Milton Police Department will take part in the sixth installment of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Target on Ga. 9 in Milton.

The Target is located at 13057 Ga. 9. All forms of prescription drugs will be taken, no matter how old.

During the last DEA-led National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Sept. 29, citizens turned in a record-breaking 488,395 pounds (244 tons) of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal at the 5,263 take-back sites available in all 50 states and U.S. territories.

When the results of the four Take-Back Days to date are combined, the DEA and its state, local and tribal law-enforcement and community partners have removed over 2 million pounds (1,018 tons) of medication from circulation.
