Take Back Events

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), is an opportunity for community members to safely dispose of unused, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs at community events organized with local law enforcement. The 16th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day was held on October 27, 2018. Law enforcement agencies across Minnesota collected nearly 10 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, or you are looking for drug take back event locations, contact the DEA for more information.
