MSPD Accepting Drugs for the DEA’s National Take Back Drug Day

October 29 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Drug overdoses are a clear and present danger to public health, public safety, and national security in the United States. In an effort to stop prescription misuse and opioid addiction before it even begins, the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day encourages people to remove unused drugs from their homes. This action underscores the DEA’s commitment to the safety and health of Americans.

The DEA is dedicated to improving the safety and health of our communities, and one way we can do this is by lowering overdoses and overdose-related fatalities. We are working to further minimize drug-related violence while the community does its part to return unused prescriptions and remove them from danger.

Turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal on Saturday, October 29, 2022.

From 10:00AM-2:00PM at the commuting policing office 274 Westward Drive.

This is how it goes:

  • Returning unused or outdated medication
  • The program is anonymous
  • If necessary, erase any personal information from the label.
  • Keep liquids in their original containers with tight lids.
  • Syringes and injectables are not accepted
  • Illegal substances like marijuana and meth are not allowed, however if you are brave enough to bring illegal substances to the police, you risk being arrested for having illegal substances in your possession.

Turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal on Saturday, October 29, 2022.

From 10:00AM-2:00PM at the commuting policing office 274 Westward Drive.
