DRUG TAKE BACK

The Guilderland Police Department participates in the Drug Enforcement Agency National Prescription Drug Take Back Day which is held twice a year. Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. Studies shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

What CAN be disposed:


• Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter substances
• Medication in its original container or removed from its container and disposed of directly into the disposal boxes. (If an original container is submitted, be sure to remove any identifying information from the prescription label.)

What CANNOT be disposed:


• No sharps and syringes

Drug Take Back Day officials will not ask questions of nor request identification from anyone.
