Turn in leftover, expired medications on Saturday

Turn in leftover, expired drugs: The Hernando County Sheriff's Office and Brooksville Police Department will participate in the federal Drug Enforcement Agency's Drug Take Back Program from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Sheriff's deputies will be at the Walmart Supercenter at 13300 Cortez Blvd., Spring Hill. Brooksville police officers will be at the Walmart Supercenter at 7305 Broad St., Brooksville. Residents are encouraged to bring leftover and expired medications for proper disposal.

The purpose of the prescription drug take-back initiative is to prevent the abuse or illegal sale of leftover drugs. It also helps protect the environment, as drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply.

For information, call the Sheriff's Office at (352) 754-6830 or the Police Department at (352) 540-3800.
