GAINESVILLE - The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29, and four drop-off sites in Hall County are among those in northeast Georgia.

- Gainesville Police Department, located at 701 Queen City Parkway in Gainesville;

- Kroger, 3630 Thompson Bridge Road in Gainesville  sponsored by The Hall County Sheriff s Office;

- Target of Flowery Branch, 5865 Spout Springs Road  sponsored by The Hall County Sheriff s Office; and

- The Oakwood Police Department at the Oakwood City Hall located at 4035 Walnut Circle in Oakwood
