The Laramie County Sheriff’s Department will be taking back prescription drugs at two locations on Saturday, Oct. 28, according to department spokeswoman Capt. Linda Gesell.

She says sheriff’s deputies will be at the Safeway Grocery Store and Pharmacy at 700 South Greeley Highway and at the Laramie County Fire District#2 headquarters at 5800 North College from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. to take back unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

The purpose of the drug take-back day is to allow for the safe disposal of the drugs and keep them out of the hands of drug addicts and juveniles. The drugs range from over the counter medications to narcotic prescription drugs.

No illegal drugs, sharps, thermometers, oxygen containers, or chemotherapy drugs will be accepted.¬† Meanwhile, Cheyenne Police Department spokesman Officer Kevin Malatesta says that while the CPD isn’t planning any special events for Saturday, people are always welcome to drop off unwanted drugs at the drug drop off box in the lobby of the Public Saftey Building.

Drugs are accepted there weekdays from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
