Take Back Day events provide easy, no-cost opportunities to dispose of medicines stored in the home that are susceptible to abuse and theft. On October 28, agencies participating can also collect vape pens or other e-cigarette devices from individual consumers only after the batteries are removed from the devices. If the battery cannot be removed, individual consumers can check with large electronic chain stores who may accept the vape pen or e-cigarette devices for proper disposal.
Anyone who would like to drop off medication or drugs, prescription or other, can drop it off at the events on Saturday, October 28, with no questions asked. No syringes are accepted, whether used or new. And no inhalers will be accepted.
FREE lock boxes will be given out to those who drop off unwanted medications courtesy of DrugFree WilCo.
