Submitted by Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office
SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. – Law enforcement agencies throughout Sarasota County will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) national event to properly dispose of turned-in prescription medication from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30.
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has permanent drop boxes at the Criminal Justice Center, 2071 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota, which is open 24-hours a day; and the South County office, 4531 Englewood Road, Venice, where the hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Prescription and over-the-counter solid dosage medication, such as tablets and capsules, are accepted. Liquids and needles will not qualify. While boxes at each location are available to the public year-round, the agencies participate in the national turn-in initiative to publicize the permanent option for proper disposal. Medication turn-in is always anonymous.
