On Saturday, September 16th, 2017, the Toledo Police Department will again be hosting a drug "take back day" collecting expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs at the Toledo Police Department located at 214 west High Street from 9:00AM to 5:00PM. This effort is an event to collect and safely dispose of unwanted medications.
The Toledo Police Department hopes this "take back: event serves a precautionary effort to safeguard citizens from potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. This is a free service provided by the department and helps keep prescription medications out of the garbage/landfill and out of the local sewer system which can not handle prescription medications.
Bring in any prescription medications you no longer want or use; no questions asked! Due to privacy issues, please remove any labels on the bottles after you arrive at the police department, or you may place them in one of our disposable bags. We also have a black marker that you can use to blacken your name on the bottle. When transporting them, please make sure they're still in the bottle with your name marked on them.
The following items will NOT be accepted by the Toledo Police Department for this "Take back" event: Syringes, needles, inhalers, intravenous solutions, or anything that is an illegal substance such as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy, etc....
If you are unable to drop off unused or unwanted medications during this event, you may drop them off anytime before the event and after the event if an officer is at the Toledo Police Department. In the event an officer is not in the office, please call 641-484-3760 Ext. #1 and ask for a Toledo Police Officer to meet you at our office.
Any questions may be directed to Toledo Police Chief Bob Kendall at 641-484-3013.
In addition--to those who bring children to the drop off--Chief Kendall has some stickers, candy and information and coloring books to hand out! :)
