DEA-Drug Take Back

National Drug Take Back Day

Every year, millions of Americans gain access to prescription drugs, such as pain relievers and stimulants, and use them for non-medical purposes.

Clearly, accessing these types of drugs is easy – but it is also very easy for each of us to do something about it. If you have expired or unused prescription drugs in your medicine cabinet, don’t let them stay there for easy access by a curious teen or a visitor to your home.

Bring them to the next DEA Drug Take Back Day collection event hosted by our Police Division. Drugs can be dropped off drive-thru style.

  • Accepted items:
    • Any prescriptions of pills. Empty items into plastic bags for easy, anonymous disposal.
    • Vape pens or other e-cigarette devices, as long as they do not have a battery or the battery has been removed in advance.
    • Liquid medications, such as cough syrup, as long as they are in the original container and properly sealed.
    • Old, over the counter medications.
  • Items that cannot be accepted: Thermometers, needles (sharps), medication/medical waste from businesses or clinics, and ointments.

If you can’t make the Drug Take Back event, the CVS Pharmacy at Kingsdale is the closest drop-off alternative.
