  • Drug Take Back Day is Saturday

Drop off will be on Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.at the Cedar Falls Police Department (220 Clay St.). They will not accept any needles & sharps, mercury, oxygen containers, chemo/radiation substances, pressurized canisters, or illicit drugs.

Several local agencies are conducing drug take-back days. More information is available online.

Buntsma says they're trying to get people to realize that when they have prescriptions in the home, they are just like valuables, and should be hidden or even locked away. "We want these medications appropriately disposed of, so they are not polluting our landfills or water systems, or lying around the house at risk of being inappropriately used or harming children". Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. "National Prescription Drug Take Back Day provide safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs". The study concluded that a majority of the drugs abused were frequently acquired from home medicine cabinets.




It's estimated that 6.4 million Americans have abused controlled prescriptions drugs, according to a 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

Pharmacies and police departments all over the country are participating in the event. This is also a free service. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. The Carthage Police Department has a medication drug take-back box year-round. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration first launched its "Take-Back" day more than six years ago.
