With public participation at an all-time high, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department in cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will participate in the federal agency’s fifth Statewide Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, September 29th. These Take Back Days give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired or unwanted prescription drugs. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department has held its own Dispose-A-Med events on a more frequent basis in a variety of locations around Pima County. On Saturday, September 29th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. citizens of Pima County will be able to drop off their expired, unused, and unwanted pills at 13542 E. Colossal Cave Road (Walgreens) in Vail, AZ free of charge; no questions asked. By doing so, they will be helping prevent drug abuse and theft. Prescription and over-the-counter tablets, capsules, liquids, and creams will be collected. Metal or glass inhalation aerosol bottles, syringes and epi-pens will not be accepted. For safety and confidentiality reasons, any items turned over for collection cannot be returned. We cannot accept drugs from commercial organizations. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. If you have any questions, please contact the Community Resources Unit at (520) 351-4615.
