Arvada Police Department’s Drug Take Back
The 2018 event is April 14,
8 a.m. – 12 p.m. 
Arvada Police Department Headquarters
8101 Ralston Road

When over-the-counter or prescription medications are expired or no longer needed, they should be removed from the home. Many people believe that the best way to dispose of unused or expired medications is to flush them down the toilet. However, this pollutes our waterways and adversely affects wildlife and plant life along our streams and rivers.

The Drug Take Back program gives residents a safe way to dispose of these types of medications. Simply gather up your unused, unwanted and expired medications and bring them to the Arvada Police Headquarters parking lot, where you can drive up, hand off and drive away.
