The Roswell Police Department wants your drugs.

No, really.

If you have anything in the medicine cabinet that has been there for a while, cough syrup that has expired, or prescriptions you no longer need, Roswell police will take them off your hands for free on Oct. 28 and destroy the drugs.

That is National Drug Take Back Day, and Roswell police are partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Keep Roswell Beautiful and WellStar North Fulton Hospital for the event.

Officers will be set up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Roswell Recycling Center that day, accepting all pills and other forms of drugs. The center is located at 11570 Maxwell Road.

Representatives from WellStar North Fulton Hospital will be there to accept any needles too and will take them off-site for a safe disposal.

The service is free and anonymous.

In April, Roswell police collected 241 pounds of drugs in a take-back event.

For more information, please contact the Roswell Police Department at 770-640-4422 or visit the DEA’s website at www.dea.gov.
