Is your medicine cabinet full of expired drugs or medications you no longer use? Your medicine is for you. What’s safe for you might be harmful for someone else. You can dispose of your expired, unwanted, or unused medicines through a drug take back program — or you can do it at home.
We conduct environmental scans in local package and convenient stores aimed at preventing and reducing community problems related to underage drinking, (ie. selling to underaged, individuals who purchase for minors). Stores within the city limits of Conyers scored a 97% on the most recent compliance check conducted by the Department of Revenue and City of Conyers Police Dept. These checks are conducted quarterly. (A compliance check is a standardized enforcement procedure used to identify alcohol establishments that sell to underage youth and to increase retailer compliance with prohibitions on alcohol sales to minors.) We provide educational materials, calendars, warning labels for doors and windows. We talk with them about why this is important and encourage them to take the RASS classes (Responsible Alcohol Sales and Services)-this class is mandatory for all establishments in the City or County who sell alcohol by the “drink”, local restaurants, bars but not convenient stores or package stores. I have also attached all of the materials, stickers, calendars we take to the stores.
