The event is hosted by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration to collect old prescription medication residents may have in their homes. The collection site will be at the Margate City Police Department, 111 N. Decatur Ave.

Anyone wishing to turn in old prescription medication may do so, in its original container, or by removing medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal boxes. Liquids, such as cough medicine, should remain in the original container with the caps tightly sealed to prevent leakage. No syringes or sharp instruments will be accepted.
