    The National Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs.

    National Drug Take-Back Day is on Saturday, October 29, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Police Department.   Come into the Police Department with your medications, and someone will be there to accept them. NEEDLES will not be accepted.
