National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Oct. 26

Posted by Metro District

On Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Highlands Ranch Metro District, Centennial Water and Sanitation District and Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring drugs for disposal to the DCSO Highlands Ranch Substation at 9250 Zotos Dr., Highlands Ranch. Sites cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills and patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons, more than 900,000 pounds, of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 locations nationwide. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, DEA reports that almost 11 million pounds—nearly 5,500 tons—of pills have been taken in for proper disposal.
