August 27, 2014

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is once again teaming up with Walgreens for another a drug take-back program with drop off locations in Escambia County, Saturday, September 27, from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm.

The “Prescription Drug Take-Back” is a one-day effort to provide the public a site to voluntarily surrender expired, unwanted, unused pharmaceutically controlled substances, and other medications for destruction.

Medications will be accepted at Walgreens locations:

  • 9th and Langley Ave.
  • Mobile Hwy and Fairfield Dr.
  • Olive rd. and Davis Hwy.
  • Palafox and Brent lane
  • Mobile Hwy and Saufley Field Rd.

“Prescription drug abuse is not uncommon in our society and this is an opportunity for members of our community to get rid of their unwanted drugs before they fall into the hands of someone who may abuse or misuse them,” said Sheriff David Morgan.

For more information, contact Sgt. Delarian Wiggins at (850) 554-1362.
