19TH NATIONAL TAKE-BACK DAY, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2020

On Saturday, October 24, 2020, from 10am to 2pm, the Upper Saucon Police Department  will participate in  a collaborative effort with the DEA and other state and local law enforcement agencies focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. A national Take-Back day will provide a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. This one-day effort will bring national focus to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. The program also provides an opportunity for law enforcement, prevention, treatment and the business community to collaborate and establish a safe collection site for all Americans, regardless of where they reside.

• This program is absolutely anonymous and all efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of individuals disposing of medications. No questions or requests for identification will be made by law enforcement personnel present

• Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter medications will be collected

• Sharpies and syringes will not be accepted due to the potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.

The drug collection box is located in the Upper Saucon Police Department Lobby.
