The Drug Enforcement Administration National Prescription Drug Take Back Day provides a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs. Drop off expired, unwanted and unused pills and capsules Saturday, Oct. 29, 2022 to the Springboro Police Department. Officers will be on-site 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to collect prescription and over-the-counter medications. Pills should be removed from containers and placed in a zipper-lock storage bag for disposal. Liquids, creams, powders and needles are not accepted.
Following the event, representatives from the DEA will collect and safely dispose of the medications. In April, more than 65 lbs. of pills were collected from residents.
In addition to participating in the nationwide Take-Back events, the Police Department maintains a drug drop box located in the lobby of the City Building for drop-offs 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, contact Springboro Police, 937-748-0611.
