[ARCHIVED] National Drug Take-Back Initiative

The Cedar Falls Police Department will once again participate in a national effort to remove potentially dangerous drugs from our nation’s medicine cabinets. This is an opportunity for citizens to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications, to law enforcement for destruction. Last September nearly 309 tons of unwanted prescription drugs were collected nationwide.

Citizens can, anonymously, drop of these medications at the Cedar Falls Police Department, 220 Clay St., or at CVS Pharmacy, 2302 W. 1st Street from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., on Saturday, September 26th, 2015.

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 273-8612 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., on September 26th, 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. The drug drop box is available to citizens 24/7, 365 days per year.
