On Saturday, April 30, Carteret County law enforcement agencies will hold the spring “Pills Can Kill” prescription drug take back event. This event includes the Emerald Isle Police Department at the Food Lion at Emerald Plantation Shopping Center.
This one-day event will make it convenient for the public to rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., citizens will be able to drop off their unused prescription medication to deputies and police officers who will be at all five Food Lion locations in Carteret County. The group will not be able to accept liquids, needles, or sharps of any kind.
