Drug Take Back Day is September 27th.
The Rome Police Department has partnered with Walgreens for the next D.E.A. nationwide prescription pill take back initiative scheduled for Saturday, September 27, 2014. Area residents should bring unwanted, expired or unused prescription medication to Walgreens, 201 South James Street in Rome on Saturday, September 27, 2014 between 10am and 2pm. for safe disposal.
