SWFL Takes Part in DEA National Take Back Day
On Saturday, April 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Med Safe USA, LLC, the Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal at Lee County’s Safe Kids Day Celebration at Page Field, 4700 Terminal Drive. Sites cannot accept liquids, needles, or sharps – only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous – no questions asked.
Last fall, Americans turned in nearly 460 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 take back sites.
After you drop off your prescription drugs, plan to enjoy the more than 30 exhibits and tables at Safe Kids Day!
On behalf of the citizens of Lee County, thank you to Med Safe USA, LLC for making this important community service a reality.
Can’t come to Page Field? You can drop your unused and expired prescriptions off at any law enforcement station in Lee County, and at the following Walgreen’s locations: 4204 Palm Beach Boulevard, Fort Myers, 12749 South Cleveland, Fort Myers, and 805 Cape Coral Drive East, Cape Coral.
