Arvada PD Drug Take Back Event

Arvada Police Department Drug Take Back Event

The Drug Take-Back program, provided in partnership by the W. Michael Northey Foundation partners with the Arvada Police Department, gives residents a safe way to dispose of medications. Medications should never be flushed down the toilet.

  • This is a free program. Donations benefit the Foundation, providing scholarships to college-bound Arvada high school students and help to families of officers killed or injured in the line of duty.
  • Participating is easy. Simply gather up your unused, unwanted and expired medications and bring them to the event location, drive up, handoff and drive away.

When is the Event?

The Drug Take Back is held on Saturday, April 13, from 8 am until 12 noon.

The Drug Take Back will be at the Arvada Police Department, 8101 Ralston Rd.
