Overstocked with Drugs? Drop Unused Meds Off Saturday

Use the drop-off location search to find the nearest spot to your home.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and local police are cooperating in hosting a drug take-back initiative on Saturday, with drop-off locations stationed across the county.

The Prescription Drug Take Back initiative was a big success earlier this year, collecting more than 300 pounds of expired or unused medications. Safely disposing of these medications prevents the drugs from falling into the wrong hands. Additionally, improper disposal of these drugs, such as pouring them down a toilet or sink can cause serious problems to the local water system.

Anyone with unused and/or expired prescription medication is invited to bring them to the their local disposal unit, which are distributed across the county. To find the location nearest you, use the DEA's local site search on its website, or use the list below.

The take-back initiative is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Broadneck—1070 E. College Parkway, Annapolis 21409 (Maryland Natural Resource Police)
Pasadena—3700 Mountain Rd., Pasadena 21122 (Eastern District Police Station)
Edgewater—35 Stepney's Ln., Edgewater 21037 (Southern District Police Station)
Glen Burnie—6800 Aviation Blvd., Glen Burnie 21061 (Maryland State Police Glen Burnie Barrack)

Edgewater's Eastern District Headquarters is the home of the county's first MedReturn drug disposal station. The small, green tin allows residents to bring in any unwanted prescription drug and simply toss them into the disposal chute.

Much closer drop off for Crofton residents is the AA Co. Police Station, Western District, located at 8273 Telegraph Rd in Odenton.

In case people miss this, I think some (at least the Edgewater location as far as I know) have a drop box set up permanently and the police stations are open 24/7 I think. So you can probably still drop things off if you miss the designated time.

the word bewegan http://www.outletcoachstoday.com meant "to cover, envelop", http://www.coachoutletod.com rather than "to move". http://www.coachs-outletcar.com Preference of one synonym http://www.coachoutletdp.com over another also causes http://www.coachoutletwo.com differentiation in lexis, even http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com where both words are Germanic, as http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net in English care vs. German Sorge. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org Both words descend http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net from Proto-Germanic *karō and *surgō respectively, http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com/ but *karō has become the dominant http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com word in English http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com for "care" while in German, Dutch, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org and Scandinavian http://www.coachoutletrf.com languages, the http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com *surgō root prevailed. *Surgō still survives in http://www.coachoutletuser.net English, however, as sorrow.
