Drug Take-Back Box

Mount Pleasant, SC –  Along with WakeUp Carolina and CVS/pharmacy, the Mount Pleasant Police Department will kick-off their drug take-back program on April 6th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in the lobby of police headquarters. As part of this program, the Police Department will officially open their prescription drug take-back box.  This is indeed a quantifiable measure of WakeUp Carolina’s impact, its growing voice, and tenacity of founder Julie Lawrence.
“This is an important program for us to be involved in,” says Chief Carl Ritchie. “This take-back box is just one way we are helping stem the prescription pill crisis in our community and our state.”

Residents will be able to drop off any unused or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal at the police department. This take-back box is not equipped to handle liquids, syringes, aerosol cans, or inhalers.
