While Moultrie County will be doing a drug prescription take-back program on Saturday, Taylorville Police Department will also be doing one as well. This Saturday marks the Prescription Take Back Day as police departments around the United States will be taking your expired drugs and prescriptions and with no questions asked disposing of them properly. The Taylorville Police Department will be at Walgreens from 10-2 on Saturday. Officer Alan Mills with the Taylorville Police Department says this is a way to get rid of your prescriptions that you don’t use anymore.
Mills says there are no questions asked with this. You can drop off the pills either in a bottle or remove the labels.
Mills says the DEA has a way that they do it to make sure the proper procedures are taken care of to get rid of the medication the right way.
