Police to host drug prescription drop-off April 30

Snellville – The Snellville Police Department will be participating in the National Drug Take Back event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 30 at the Snellville Police Department, 2315 Wisteria Drive.

The event is designed to allow residents a safe way to dispose of prescription drugs that would be dangerous in the hands of children and potentially abused by others.

Officers will set up a drive-thru style drop off so residents can drive up to the designated drop off area to participate in the event. No needles or syringes can be accepted.

During the last Drug Enforcement Administration sponsored drug take back event, SPD collected more than 309 pounds of old medication.

This is also the Saturday of Snellville Days this year but the event will still take place at the police department.  

For more information about the event contact Lt. A.L. Sullivan at 770-985-3555 or asullivan@snellville.org.
