On Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the University of Maryland Police Department (UMPD) and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will provide the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Pocomoke Building at 7569 Baltimore Avenue, College Park, MD. (Sites cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

To keep everyone safe, collection sites will follow local COVID-19 guidelines and regulations.
