The local Drug Take Back Day is set for Saturday, April 27, beginning at 10 a.m. at three locations across the Greater Augusta area.

Drug Take Back Day is a safe way for the community to dispose of prescription, over-the-counter and pet medicines. This is a coordinated state-wide effort between law enforcement agencies, hospitals and healthcare providers and community service organizations.

Medicine does not have to be in original containers. If it is, identifying information should be removed or marked out. Needles and ‘Sharps’ are not allowed.

Locally, this effort is coordinated by the Home Instead Senior Care, Augusta Health, the Staunton Police Department and the Waynesboro Police Department, Augusta County Sheriff’s Office, and Greater Augusta Prevention Partners.

Three local sites

  • Staunton: Fisher Auto Parts Parking Lot next to Augusta Health’s Urgent Care on Statler Blvd.
  • Waynesboro: Waynesboro Neighborhood Walmart at 1211 West Broad Street
  • Verona: Augusta County Sheriff’s Office Parking Lot at 127 Lee Highway
