Turn in old prescriptions on Saturday

    What do you do with those old  prescriptions in the medicine cabinet?
    Baltimore County is setting up drop-off locations where county residents can get rid of those prescriptions safely.
    Dundalk residents can drop off prescriptions at North Point Police Precinct 12, located at 1747 Merritt Boulevard on Saturday, April 27. Baltimore County police officers and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents will be there from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.     
    The public is encouraged to take advantage of this program. The procedure is easy and anyone dropping off a controlled and/or non-controlled substance will not be asked any questions nor will they be asked for identification.
    This is part of the DEA’s National Take Back Initiative to get dangerous drugs out of homes and disposed of in a safe and secure manner.
    Residents should drop off medications in the original packaging or remove them and place the drugs into the disposal box.
    Liquid medications should be tightly sealed and in the original containers.
    Any identifying information that may be on the prescription label should be removed.     
    Over-the-counter drugs will also be accepted.
    Illicit drugs and syringes will not be accepted.
