National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Saturday, October 24, 2020
Everyone is invited to take part in this year’s National Take-Back Prescription Drugs Day on Oct. 24. The effort is coordinated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), state and local law enforcement agencies, and community partners to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from homes.
The Spearfish Police Department serves as a collection site, featuring a drop box at 225 W. Illinois St., which is accessible 24 hours a day for people to anonymously drop off expired or unused prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, pet medicines, and vitamin supplements for destruction (no syringes/sharps). All collected medications will be disposed of by law enforcement in accordance with the state Department Environmental Protection guidelines and the DEA.
