CARLISLE, Pa. — Giant-Carlisle will work with the Drug Enforcement Administration to sponsor several medication take-back events next month, the company said.
The chain, owned by Netherlands-based Royal Ahold and officially known as Giant Food Stores, will work with the DEA and local law enforcement agencies as part of the national drug take-back initiative on April 28, collecting unwanted medications at several of its stores.
"We are pleased to once again expand the number of locations where our customers can properly dispose of unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter medicines," Giant-Carlisle pharmacy operations director Leigh Shirley said. "We're proud to partner with the DEA and local law enforcement to reduce the volume of unwanted medication in our environment and our local communities."
