The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Arlington Heights Police Department will coordinate efforts to remove potentially dangerous drugs from homes.
The National Prescription Take-Back Initiative will provide an opportunity for the public to surrender unwanted, expired and unused pharmaceuticals and unwanted over the counter medication to law enforcement officers for proper disposal. This will be a great opportunity for those who have accumulated unused or unwanted prescription drugs to safely dispose of them.
The 15th Prescription Take-Back Initiative will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2018, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The collection site for the pharmaceuticals is the Arlington Heights Village Hall, located at 33 South Arlington Heights Road. The service is free and anonymous. Tablets, capsules and all other solid dosage forms will be accepted. Intravenous solutions, injectables and syringes will not be accepted.
Last October, the DEA and over 4,200 of its state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners collected 912,305 pounds (456 tons) of unwanted medicines at more than 5,300 collection sites. Overall, in its 14 previous Take Back events, the DEA and its partners have taken in 9,015,668 pounds (almost 4,508 tons) of pills.
