Next Drug Takeback Event is Saturday April 28 from 10am – 2pm with 25 collection sites located throughout Delaware. This event gives the public an opportunity to safely dispose of expired, unused and unwanted medications.

Drug Take Back Day COLLECTION_SITES April 28 2018 copy.pdf

Anyone can simply bring medications for disposal to any of the 25 collection sites. The service is free and anonymous — no questions asked. All efforts will be made to protect the identity of individuals disposing of medications. No questions or requests for identification will be made by law enforcement personnel present. Keep the medicines in their original container and scratch off or use a permanent marker to cover the personal information.

Prescription and over-the-counter pills, liquids, and cream medications will all be accepted - even pet medication. No syringes, injectable medications or inhalers will be accepted.

This Drug Take Back Day event addresses a vital public health and safety issue . Americans are now advised that their past methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—pose potential health and safety hazards. Though not at dangerous levels yet, traces of several drugs have been found in private and public water systems throughout Delaware. In addition, medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends—and that includes the home medicine cabinet.

So, please consider dropping off unused drugs at a National Drug Take Back Day collection site near you on Saturday, April 28th between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at any of the 25 collections sites statewide.
