Take Back Events

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), is an opportunity for community members to dispose of unused, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs at community events organized with local law enforcement. The 14th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day was held on October 28, 2017.  Law enforcement agencies across Minnesota collected more than 13 tons of unneeded medications. The next Take Back Day will be in the spring. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.  If you are a representative of a law enforcement agency or organization interested in participating in Take Back Day in your community, contact the DEA for more information.
