Community able to drop off expired drug prescriptions year-round

MUSCOGEE COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - The Muscogee County Sheriff's Office is taking the initiative to keep drugs off the streets.

Authorities collected unwanted and expired drugs as a part of the National Drug Take Back Initiative over the weekend.

If you missed Saturday's event, no worries! Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr says he wants to remind people about the "big white box" that's available year-round.

"We have our big white box out here on the fourth floor if you want to dispose of any kind of medication," Sheriff Darr said. "Make sure you come up here during normal business hours. In the next few weeks, hopefully soon as possible, we'll be adding another box out there at the Citizens' Service Center."

The big white box is located at the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office on 10th Street.
