The Drug Enforcement Administration is sponsoring the 23rd nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative on Saturday, Oct. 29.
Collection sites will be set up for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs which will be properly disposed of without threat to the environment.
This program is for liquid and pill medications. Vaping pens without batteries and vaping cartridges will also be taken.
Needles, new or used, will not be accepted for disposal. This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. Unwanted medications may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except for the Lowell and Toll Road Posts between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
As a reminder, you can also drop off unwanted medications in the 525 pill drop off box that’s in the lobby of the South Bend Police Department anytime.
