DEA Drug Take Back at KPD HQ Saturday, October 27 10am-2pm
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Community Policing officers will staff a collection point in the lobby of police headquarters at 237 Laurel Avenue, Kearny.
Medications can be dropped off anonymously. We won't ask your name, but we do ask that you don't turn in any sharps, needles, or glass.
National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.
The last Take-Back Day brought in almost 1 million pounds of unused or expired prescription medication. This is the largest amount collected since the program began in 2010. This brings the total amount of prescription drugs collected by DEA since the fall of 2010 to 9,964,714 pounds, or 4,982 tons.
