[ARCHIVED] DEA Drug Take Back Day April 27 from 10 am-2 pm

The Cedar Falls Police Department will once again participate in a national effort to remove potentially dangerous drugs from our nation's medicine cabinets. According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. This event is an opportunity for citizens to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications, to law enforcement for destruction. In October 2018, 457 tons of medication was collected and disposed of by the DEA.

Citizens can, anonymously, drop off these medications at the Cedar Falls Police Department, 220 Clay St., 10 am-2 pm, on Saturday, April 27, 2019.

The DEA will not accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills and patches.

Cedar Falls citizens who are home-bound can have their unused/unwanted/expired prescription drugs picked up by a uniformed Cedar Falls Police Officer during this event. Please call 319-273-8612 on April 27 between 10 am-2 pm, to take advantage of this service.

Citizens can also take advantage of the prescription drug drop-box located in the lobby of the police department, if they can't participate on Saturday. This box is available 24/7, 365 days a year.
