Free & Confidential Delaware Drug Take Back Event, April 26th
The National Drug Take Back Day event is on Saturday, April 26th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with 32 collection sites located throughout Delaware. This event gives the public an opportunity to safely dispose of expired, unused and unwanted medications.
Anyone can simply bring medications for disposal to any of the 28 collection sites. Prescription and over-the-counter pills, liquids, and cream medications will all be accepted - even pet medication. 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.
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, environmental and safety hazards. Though not at dangerous levels yet, traces of several drugs have been found in private and public water systems throughout Delaware.
