Saturday the Dunwoody Police are collecting unwanted and expired medications for destruction

Saturday - 10 am until 2 pm
Dunwoody City Hall
41 Perimeter Center East
Dunwoody, GA 30346

On September 25, 2010, the City of Dunwoody will be collaborating with the DEA to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at Dunwoody City Hall, 41 Perimeter Center East, 30346. The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.
  • The program is anonymous.
  • Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.
  • Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.
  • Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.

Operation Pill Drop - Update

Operation Pill Drop was a tremendous success at the Dunwoody Police Department. A total of 104.2lbs of pills were collected on Saturday September 25, 2010. Citizens have responded well to the effort of trying to keep these expired drugs out of the hands of children. The Dunwoody Police would like to thank all of the citizens who participated in and supported this effort.

If you have any questions about Operation Pill Drop, please contact Sgt. Mike Carlson at (678)382-6907.
