Every year National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day encourages people to safely get rid of unwanted an unused prescription drugs, but the Fort Collins Police have been authorized to start a program that will allow residents to drop of drugs all year long.

From the Fort Collins Police:

Fort Collins Police have received authorization from the Colorado Department of Public Health (CDPHE) to participate in a daily drug take-back program allowing residents to dispose of their drugs more conveniently. This service complements the Nationwide DEA Drug Take-Back events.

Residents may now safely dispose of unused, unneeded and expired over-the-counter and prescriptions medications any day of the week to Fort Collins Police Services, 2221 S. Timberline Rd., Monday through Friday, 8 am – 10 pm; Saturday & Sunday, 8 am – 6 pm. This service is free & anonymous.

Items not accepted include: intravenous solutions, injectables, syringes, mercury (thermometers), oxygen containers, chemotherapy/radioactive substances, pressurized canisters and illicit drugs.

Seems like a great idea.

The next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, put together by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, is coming up on April 26, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will have drop off locations for that day listed starting April 1.
