A number of Wood County law enforcement agencies will again be taking part in the Sixth Annual National Prescription Take Back Day, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency, on Saturday.
The event allows individuals to drop off unwanted prescription drugs so they can be safely disposed of.
Take Back Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All medications must be in zipped bags and no liquids will be accepted. The service is free and anonymous.
The Wood County Sheriff's Office and Bowling Green Police Department will again offer two drop-off sites in the city, located at the entrance of the Wood County Hospital, as well as at the Wood County Sheriff's Office.
The Bowling Green Police, Sheriff's Office, and Perrysburg Township Police also offer year-round prescription drug drop off at their offices during regular business hours.
Additional Wood County drop-off sites include:
• Perrysburg Police Department.
• Rossford Police Department.
• Walgreens, 10003 Fremont Pike, Perrysburg.
In the five previous drug take back events, the DEA and its local, state and tribal law enforcement partners have collected more than 2 million pounds, or more than 1,000 tons, of prescription medications.
