CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – The Chesterfield County Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Chesterfield County Sheriff's Office and SAFE, Chesterfield's substance abuse prevention coalition, will help community members safely dispose of expired and unneeded medications on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The police department will host a Medication Take-Back on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Wegmans, located at 12501 Stone Village Way.  Police, DEA agents and volunteers will be on hand to collect unused or expired prescription, over-the-counter and veterinary medications. Residents should leave medications in their original containers.  Needles, syringes and other "sharps" will not be accepted.

Turning in expired and unused medications helps prevent medication abuse and protect the environment.
