RPD, DEA Join Forces for Drug Take-Back Initiative


October 20, 2016

The Richmond Police Department, with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, will host a Drug Take-Back initiative from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, October 22 at the Arthur Ashe Athletic Center, 3017 N Boulevard and Southside Community Center, 4100 Hull St.

Expired and unused prescription medications are a public safety issue that can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose, abuse and illegal sales. These medications cannot be turned in to your local pharmacy. Residents also are asked not to flush the prescriptions into the sewer system for environmental reasons.
Last April, Americans turned in 447 tons (over 893,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners.  Overall, in its 11 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 6.4 million pounds—about 3,200 tons—of pills. 

“This is an excellent opportunity to dispose of unused or expired medications in a proper way,” said Captain Michael Zohab of the Department’s Special Investigations Division. “These medications should not be kept around the house. Bringing them to the Drug Take-Back event could save a life.”

All prescription medications collected will be incinerated according to federal and state environmental guidelines. Richmond Police asks that you do not bring syringes or illegal narcotics for disposal to the collection sites. Medical waste or bulk commercial medications will also not be accepted. Those disposing of medications may remain anonymous.

Law enforcement agencies across the country are hosting similar events. To find locations outside Richmond go to: http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/
