Littleton Police taking back unwanted prescription drugs April 27

Post Date:04/12/2019 2:00 p.m.

Don't be the dealer - drug take-back day 2019On Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Littleton Police Department (LPD) and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 17th opportunity in nine 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 Littleton Center front parking lot at 2255 W. Berry Avenue in Littleton. LPD cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons (more than 900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in almost 11 million pounds—nearly 5,500 tons—of pills.

Take-back programs are the best way to dispose of old drugs. But if a program is not convenient, bring them to the City of Littleton Drug Drop Box, or follow these steps:

  • Take the meds out of their bottles;
  • Mix them with something unappealing like used kitty litter or coffee grounds;
  • Seal them in a bag or disposable container, and throw that away.

For more information call 303-795-3881 weekdays, prior to the event.
