Wellington will participate in the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) nationwide “Drug Take Back Day.” The event will be held on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Walgreens store located at 10420 W. Forest Hill Blvd. near the Mall at Wellington Green.
Wellington has partnered with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the Palm Beach County Behavioral Health Coalition, Safe Kids PBC and Walgreens to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs.
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is an annual event aimed at educating people about the potential for abuse of prescription drugs and providing a safe and responsible way to dispose of them. The Wellington site is one of three locations in Palm Beach County to host this event.
In addition to the Drug Take Back Day event, the village has a year-round pill drop-off location at the PBSO District 8 Substation at 14000 Greenbriar Blvd. Residents may also find all the year-round locations in Palm Beach County by visiting www.pbcdrop.org.
