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. We are unsure if they will continue in October. Stay tuned for more...

The permanent disposal locations across Sullivan County are still accessible!
