Public Notices & Announcements
NATIONAL TAKE BACK INITIATIVE IX
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2015
10:00 am – 2:00 pm LOCAL TIME
11100 MUELLER ROAD, SUITE 6
GREEN PARK, MO 63123
On September 26, 2015, from 10 am – 2 pm local time, DEA will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. This national take-back day will provide a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction and will bring national focus to the issue of pharmaceutical drug abuse. The program provides an opportunity for law enforcement, prevention, treatment and business communities to collaborate and establish a safe collection site for all Americans, regardless of where they reside.
Collection Day Protocols:
• Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter substances may be collected.
• This event is for patients and their families to dispose of unwanted medications. Pharmacies, hospitals and physicians may NOT drop off their excess medications for disposal. Meds from nursing homes will be accepted since those meds belong to the patients and not the facility.
• Any solid dosage from pharmaceutical products (tablets, capsules, etc.) in consumer containers will be accepted. Small (pint size) bottles of cough syrups will be accepted if they are sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
• Illicit substances such as marijuana or heroin are not a part of this initiative and will not be accepted.
• No needles will be accepted. Intra-venous (IV) solutions, injectables, and syringes will NOT be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.
• Inhalers and other compressed air cylinders will NOT be accepted.
• This program is anonymous and all efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of individuals disposing of medications. No questions or requests for identification will be made.
• The public should dispose of medication in its original container (Rx vial) or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. You are NOT required to remove the Rx labels from the bottles by any federal law or regulation. Since the public is turning it in, there are NO patient privacy rules being violated. All material collected (including the Rx vials) will be incinerated.
• The public should retain possession of their own medication during the surrender process. Law enforcement personnel will not handle the medications at any time.
