The Mt. DeChantal Road Kroger will partner with several local law enforcement agencies to take back or expired or unused medication.
According to a Kroger press release, sheriff's deputies and law enforcement officers are the only ones who can legally take the drugs, but Kroger will have pharmacists on hand too.
The event will take place Saturday, July 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"Our pharmacists are trained experts when it comes to prescription drug abuse prevention and education," said Bill Sheridan, Kroger's Columbus Division Pharmacy Merchandiser. "We will have pharmacists on site to answer any questions people may have about the drug abuse epidemic."
Customers will be asked to pull into the parking lot the day of the event, and hand over any drugs to the law enforcement officers.
All prescription bottles will be destroyed in a HIPAA-compliant manner.
