[ARCHIVED] Cedar Falls to Participate In National Drug Take Back Event

drug take back CF 2019

The Cedar Falls Public Safety Department will once again participate in a national effort to remove potentially dangerous drugs from our nation’s medicine cabinets by hosting a National Drug Take Back Event. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs.

This event is an opportunity for citizens to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications, to law enforcement for destruction. In April 2019, nearly 467 tons of medication was collected and disposed of by the DEA.

Citizens can, anonymously, drop off these medications at the Cedar Falls Public Safety Building, 4600 South Main St., 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

The DEA will not accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills and patches.

Cedar Falls citizens who are homebound can have their unused/unwanted/expired prescription drugs picked up by a uniformed Cedar Falls Police Officer during this event. Please call 273-8612 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on October 26 to take advantage of this service.

If citizens are unable to participate on Saturday, they can also always take advantage of the prescription drug drop-box located in the lobby of the Public Safety Building. This box is available 24/7, 365 days a year.
