Prescription Pill Drop-Off

The City's Substance Abuse and Advisory Commission is hosting its third annual Pill Drop-Off event this Saturday! These events have been a tremendous success in the past, and I imagine this will be no exception. All prescription and over-the-counter medications will be accepted, with no questions asked.

The Drop-Off is a joint effor between the Substance Abuse Advisory Commission, Raleigh Police Department, and our Community Services Department. The event is part of an effort to reduce the abuse of prescription drugs and the harmful environmental affects of improper disposal of medications.

The following Food Lions will participate, and there will be a Police Officer and Pharmacist on hand to accept the medications.

13200 New Falls of Neuse Road, at Wakefield Crossing
5633 Creedmoor Road, at Millbrook Crossing
2420 Wycliff Road, at Meredith Park Commons
1601 Cross Link Road

It is recommended that everyone dropping of medications should remove any personal information, either by removing the label from the bottle or marking through any personal information.
