The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting the “National DEA Take Back (Pill Drop)” on Saturday April 27th, 2019 from 09:00 am until 1:00 pm. Our drop off location will be in the "Jury Parking Lot" beside the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office on the corner of Edgefield Street and Oak Avenue. Just look for a "RED TENT" manned by the Greenwood County Sheriff Office Deputies.
We will only be taking pills. NO lotions, NO creams, NO liquids, NO suppositories, etc. "IT MUST BE ONLY PILLS". The purpose of doing the pill drop is to properly dispose of the pills so that they do not contaminate the soil and the water systems. Also with our current opioid epidemic it is a great way to get rid of the pills before our young people get them to sale or take. It is a common thing now for young people to get take pills out of their family’s medicine cabinets and sell them. So by participating in this event you can have them properly disposed of and not have to worry about this happening to you.
