Drug Take Back Day

Drug Take Back Day this year is Saturday, October 24. It is a national event offering a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs at locations in communities around the country. Last year’s October Drug Take Back Day brought in almost 442 tons of unused or expired prescription medication and vaping devices.

The Partners for Prevention Coalition and Richland Center Police Department will be working together to reduce prescription drug misuse in Richland County. They will be hosting a local Drug Take Back Day this Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00 at the Richland Center Police Department.

Items that will be accepted are: prescription drugs, over the counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays and inhalers, creams, vials, and pet medications. New this year they will also be accepting vape cartridges, minus the batteries.

Do not bring: illegal drugs, needles, sharps or aerosol cans, mercury thermometers or personal care products or household hazardous waste.

The Partners for Prevention Coalition and the Richland Center Police Department will be accepting items at the Richland Center Police Department this Saturday (October 24) from 10:00 to 2:00. Free medication lock boxes will also be available.

If you are unable to participate in the Drug Take Back Day this Saturday, there are permanent drop boxes available year round to deposit acceptable items. Drop boxes are located in the lobby of the Richland Center Municipal Building, Richland County Sheriff’s Department, and the Viola Village Hall.
