Sheriff Weekly is pleased to join National Drug Take Back Day. You can drop off your unused, unwanted, and expired medication this Saturday, October 28th from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. at the Highlands Ranch Substation located at 9250 Zotos Drive.

Medicine take back options are the best way to safely dispose of unused or expired prescription and nonprescription (for example, over the counter) medicines.
