2022-04-25 Drug Takeback Day April 30
Monday, April 25, 2022
Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a drug takeback event as part of the DEA National Drug Takeback Day on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at Litchfield Exchange, 14329 Ocean Highway, Pawleys Island, S.C., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
People are invited to turn in unwanted or unneeded prescription pills or capsules during the event. No liquids or syringes will be accepted.
At other times, people with unwanted medications may visit the sheriff’s office at 430 N. Fraser St., Georgetown, or the office in Litchfield Exchange to dispose of them properly Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Responsible disposal helps prevent medicines from being flushed or poured down the drain, potentially harming the environment or allowing trace amounts of the medications to enter the water supply. Also, unused medications in homes can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused or abused.
