National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 27th
In Eastern Idaho
Drop Off Unused Medications and Help Prevent Misuse
Eastern Idaho – On April 27th the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and its state and local partners
will hold the 26th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The DEA began the initiative in 2010 to provide
easy, anonymous opportunities to remove medicines in the home that are highly susceptible to misuse and
theft. Locally, Eastern Idaho Public Health, Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office, Idaho State Police, Idaho
Falls Police Department, Madison County Sheriff’s Office, Rexburg Police Department, Bonneville Youth
Development Coalition, the Center for Hope, Community Family Clinic, Blue Cross of Idaho, and the
Rexburg Free Clinic are hosting three Take Back Day collection site events within Idaho Falls and Rexburg
from 10am-2pm on Saturday, April 27th
.
Idaho Falls Location:
• Blue Cross of Idaho Office: 3630 S 25th E, Idaho Falls
Rexburg Locations:
• Madison County DMV: 510 North 2nd East, Rexburg
• Wal-Mart Parking Lot: 1450 North 2nd , Rexburg
These events will allow community members to safely and securely dispose of any unused, unwanted, or
expired prescriptions and help prevent drug misuse in our state. All prescription drugs will be accepted, as
well as over-the-counter and veterinary medications. The Take Back Day collection sites will also accept
vape pens, cartridges, or other e-cigarette devices (without the batteries in the device). Needles will not be
accepted.
National Prescription Drug Take Back Day events are a free and easy way to dispose of unused
medications that are often kept in our homes unsecured. These events help prevent the misuse of
prescription drugs and make a positive difference in our communities.
