[ARCHIVED] Successful Medication Disposal Event, 2014-030229

Today, the Frederick Police Department assisted Whitesell's Pharmacy in holding a medication disposal event. This event is part of the Drug Enforcement Agency's drug diversion program, designed to offer the public an environmentally friendly method to dispose of unwanted medications.

By destroying medications in a zero-emissions incinerator, the DEA prevents these drugs from polluting waterways, or from being misused.

210 vehicles visited the Harry Grove Stadium parking lot between 10AM and 2PM today to drop off approximately 1,071 pounds of prescription medications.

For information on the next medication disposal event, please visit www.dea.gov.

For more information, contact: SGT Corbett, 301-600-6235
