Through Medication Storage and Disposal

DEA Drug Take-Back Events

The last Saturday of every April and October, the DEA partners with local law enforcement to organize a drug take-back event. Our last event was October 26th, and there was an estimated total of 24 lbs of controlled prescriptions received - that's the equivalent of 18,000 hydrocodone/APAP tablets

The DEA Bi-Annual Prescription Drug Take Back Event for April 25, 2020 has been canceled. Currently, the DEA is planning on continuing these events in October. Stay tuned for details...
