The Rehoboth Beach Police Department will again partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration for a National Drug Take-Back Initiative from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 27.

This is an opportunity to give the public a chance to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescriptions. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and health issue. Studies show that most abused prescription drugs are obtained from the home medicine cabinet.

Bring pills for disposal to the front lobby of the police department, 229 Rehoboth Ave.

The collection is free; no appointments are necessary. Participants may dispose of medication in its original container, crossing out personal information or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. This program is anonymous, and no questions or requests for identification will be made.

For more, call 227-2577.
