ISP and DEA partner for another Drug Take Back Day

On Saturday, September 29, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the fifth nationwide "Prescription Drug Take Back" initiative.

The "Take Back" initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft.

Collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs to be disposed of for destruction.

This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.  The only restriction is we will not accept new or used needles.

This program is intended for liquid and pill medications.

The Drug Take Back events have proven to be a popular and safe method for the public to legally and safely dispose of prescription drugs that are no longer needed or have expired.

Citizens wishing to participate in this program may drop off their prescription drugs for disposal at any Indiana State Police Post throughout the state (except the Toll Road) which includes both the Evansville and Jasper Posts on Saturday, September 29, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
