Last month, the Drug Enforcement Administration invited you to drop off unneeded prescription drugs.

In Central Georgia, the Bibb County Sheriff's Office collected over 600 pounds of "expired, unused and wanted prescription drugs," according to a release.

The Zebulon Road dropoff location netted over 200 pounds of pharmaceuticals.

In Georgia, 12,605 pounds were collected in all.

Officials advise that flushing old prescriptions down the toilet poses potential health and safety threats.
