Event Being Held to Get Rid of Expired Prescriptions
An event to safely get rid of unwanted or expired prescriptions is coming up this weekend. The local nonprofit Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention is hosting a prescription drug take-back event from 10am to 2pm this Saturday at the Walgreens Pharmacy on Quintard Avenue. This annual event helps people properly dispose of unwanted and potentially dangerous drugs each year. Last year the event collected more than 85 pounds of drugs. If you are not able to make it the event on Saturday the Anniston Police Department has a box in their lobby where you can safely and easily get rid of your prescriptions.
