Cedar Falls to take part in national drug take back event

Posted: Updated:

The Cedar Falls Police Department will once again participate in a national effort to remove potentially dangerous drugs from homes.  Drop off will be on Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Cedar Falls Police Department (220 Clay St.).

You can turn in expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and medications during this drug take back event.  Only pills and patches are accepted.  No liquids, needles or sharps.  Also, Cedar Falls citizens who are homebound can have their unused/unwanted/expired prescription drugs picked up by a uniformed officer that day of the event. Please call 273-8612 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on April 28.

Last October, nearly 456 tons of unwanted prescription drugs were collected nationwide during the drug take back event at that time.

Citizens can also take advantage of the prescription drug drop-box located in the lobby of the police department 24/7, 365 days a year.
