The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Agency for the seventh nationwide prescription take-back day.
The purpose of the initiative is to prevent pill abuse and theft.
On Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., law enforcement agencies in Loudoun will be collecting expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs for destruction at five sites in the county.
The sites are: the Eastern Loudoun Sheriff's Station at 46620 East Frederick Drive in Sterling; the Dulles South Public Safety Center at 25216 Loudoun County Parkway in South Riding; the Lansdowne Public Safety Center at 19845 Sandridge Way; the Leesburg Police Department at 65 Plaza St; and Bush Tabernacle at 250 South Nursery Avenue in Purcellville. Drugs taken to Bush Tabernacle will be collected by the Purcellville Police Department.
The service is free and anonymous.
During the last initiative, local law enforcement agencies collected more than 800 pounds of drugs.
