The Effingham County Sheriff's Department along with the Effingham County 4-H Youth Ambassadors are co-sponsoring National Take Back Day on Saturday, April 26 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Effingham County Sheriff's Office in the front lobby. Come and dispose of your unused and expired medications.

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has announced another opportunity for consumers to dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs during the eighth DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on April 26, 2014. On this day thousands of collection sites will be available across the country to accept unneeded prescription drugs, including controlled substances, for safe and legal disposal. Since 2010, DEA's Take-Back Day initiative has collected a combined total of 3.4 million pounds (1,733 tons) of unneeded medications, helping to prevent diversion, misuse, and abuse of the drugs.
