Drug 'take-back' day is April 26

Residents can dispose of expired or unwanted prescription drugs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Joint Safety Services Building, 5171 Northwest Parkway.

Sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the national "take-back" event is designed to provide residents with an opportunity to safely dispose of prescription drugs, Hilliard officer Hyda Slone said.

Signs and cones will direct visitors to a collection center at the rear of the police department.

Inhalers, liquids, lotions and needles will not be accepted.
