POOLER, Ga. – Pooler Police Chief Mark Revenew announced the department will host a drug take back event in participation with the DEA’s national event.
The event will be held at the Publix Super market at 467 Pooler Parkway on Saturday April 30th from 10am until 2pm.
Bring any unused, unneeded, or expired prescription and the office will dispose of them properly. Syringes and liquids will not be collected.
These take back events prevent dangerous drugs from languishing in home medicine cabinets where they can fall into the wrong hands.
It also prevents the drugs from entering the water system when users flush them, creating potential health hazards.
