The Defuniak Springs Police have once again joined with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Pill Take-Back Event. This program has been designed to allow anyone anonymously to properly dispose of prescription medications that are in a pill bottle. Anonymous means just that no inquiries or charges will be made against any person(s) voluntarily doing so.
The DeFuniak Springs Police is participating in this event, because of our commitment to our community in saving our environment from the potential effects that these drugs can have on animals and our drinking water,when they are thrown away and sent to the landfill and not properly dispose of.
On April 30th, 2011 there will be collection boxes available for disposal of the said items at the DeFuniak Springs Police Office located at 355 U.S. Highway 90 East.
Please Read The Following:
Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.
Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.
Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
