DEA Drug Take-Back Day for Unwanted Prescription Drugs

Saturday, October 27, 2018

On Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Carbondale Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 16th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the police department at 501 South Washington Street in Carbondale, Illinois. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. The Carbondale Police Department is also partnering with Kroger to include a secondary site where unwanted medications can be disposed. The secondary site will be at Kroger, located at 501 North Giant City Road in Carbondale, IL. The Kroger take back site will also be open on Saturday October 27th, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
