Wellington will participate in the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) nationwide “Drug Take Back Day.” The event will be held on Saturday, April 22nd from 10 AM-2 PM at the Walgreens located at 10420 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 Village’s collection site is one of three locations in Palm Beach County to host this event.
Wellington is committed to promoting safe and responsible drug use and disposal. 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 (14000 Greenbriar Blvd). Residents may also find all the year-round locations in Palm Beach County by visiting pbcdrop.org.
