Drug “take back” day set Sat., Sept. 15

September 10, 2018
From: Toledo Police Chief Bob Kendall , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

On Saturday, Sept. 15 2018, the Toledo Police Department will again be hosting a drug "take back day" collecting expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs at the Toledo Police Department located at 214 west High Street in Toledo from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. This effort is an event to collect and safely dispose of unwanted medications.

The Toledo Police Department hopes this "take back" event serves a precautionary effort to safeguard citizens from potentially dangerous expired,unused and unwanted prescription drugs, This is a free service provided by the department and helps keep prescription medications out of the garbage/landfill and out of the local sewer system which can not handle prescription medications.

Bring in any prescription medications you no longer want or use; no questions asked! For your privacy, you may remove the labels on the medication bottles before you arrive at the department, or you may place any pills in a disposable container we can provide. We will assist you in every way with privacy issues.
