PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY WILL BE OCTOBER 26TH
Springfield, TN, October 9, 2013– The Robertson County Sheriff’s Office along with the Springfield Police Department will be hosting a Prescription Drug Take Back Event in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take Back.
The event will be held at CVS Pharmacy on Memorial Boulevard in Springfield on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 10am-1pm.
If you have unwanted or unused prescription drugs, you may drop them off in the containers set up for disposal with no question asked. The purpose of this event is to help prevent prescription pills from falling into the hands of children while reducing the potential for theft and resale to those who may become addicted.
Again, no questions will be asked of any citizen wishing to dispose of unwanted or unused pills. You will not need to present proof of a prescription. We hope the public will support this event again as we try to make our community safer for our children.
If you are unable to make it to the event, but still have unwanted pills, there is a container located in the lobby of the Robertson County Detention Facility that is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Prescribed narcotic drugs (Vicodin, Oxycontin, etc.)
Over the counter medications
Medicated ointments/ lotions
These Prescription Drugs Will Not Be Accepted:
