The Hillsborough County Anti-Drug Alliance is partnering with law enforcement officials and Sweetbay Supermarkets to remove unused or expired medications from the home.
As part of our ongoing effort to crack down on illegal pill mills and prevent prescription drug abuse, we are taking part in the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. On September 25th, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Tampa Police Department, will collect unused or expired prescription medications from citizens to prevent potentially dangerous drugs from getting into the wrong hands. The Hillsborough County Anti-Drug Alliance supports this take back initiative and will provide volunteers and educational materials at the collection sites.
The unused prescription drugs will be collected at five Sweetbay locations on September 25th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Citizens will be able to drop off any prescription medications they no longer use and can remain anonymous, with no questions asked.
