National Drug ‘Take Back’ Day Collection Will Be Saturday October 23 at 223 Rosemont St. Parking Lot

In April 2020, local Posse members collected approximately 200 pounds of potentially dangerous controlled substances for disposal. Nationally, over 500 tons were collected and disposed of during 2020.

PARTICIPATE IN LOCAL DRUG TAKE BACK DAY SATURDAY OCT. 23, 2021

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Posse/ DEA
National Pharmaceutical Take Back

On October 23, 2021, from 10am-2pm, in conjunction with the DEA, The Hopkins
County Sheriff’s Posse 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.  A 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.  This one-day effort will bring national focus
to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. 
*Liquids (including intravenous solutions), injectable items, and syringes will not
be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.

  • DEA will continue to accept vaping devices and cartridges at the collection
    location provided lithium batteries are removed.
