Collecting prescription drugs for safe disposal


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Roswell Police Department Recruitment Officer Dazanique Kidd collects prescription pills and medicines Saturday at the Roswell Police Station on West Second Street during National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. People could drop off unused or expired pills and patches for safe disposal. Kidd also was handing out drug deactivation kits. Other storage or disposal methods, including throwing medicines in the trash or flushing them, present potential health and safety hazards. The next Drug Take Back Day is scheduled for April. The project is done in coordination with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
