Drug Take Back Event – 2020 – Event has been postponed
The Drug Take-Back Day goal is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal of prescription medications, while educating the public about the potential for abuse of medications. Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused, and abused.
Unused or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down the drain. Removing potentially dangerous pharmaceutical substances from medicine cabinets helps to prevent them from going into our water supply.
Bring: Prescription (controlled and non-controlled) and over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays, inhalers, creams, vials and pet medications. Simply put your medications in a resealable plastic bag.
Do Not Bring: Illegal drugs, needles/sharps, aerosol cans, bio-hazardous materials (anything containing a bodily fluid or blood), mercury thermometers, personal care products (shampoo, soaps, lotions, sunscreens, etc…), household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, oil, gas).
