This effort is an event to collect and safely dispose of unwanted drugs.

The department hopes this "take back" event serves a precautionary effort to safeguard citizens from potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. This is a free service provided by the department and helps keep prescription medications out of the garbage/landfill and out of the local sewer system which can not handle prescription medications.

Bring in any prescriptions you no longer want or use, no questions asked. Due to privacy issues, it's recommended that you remove the label from the prescription bottle, or you may place the prescription medications in a disposable container.

The following items will NOT be accepted by Toledo Police for the "take back" event: syringes, needles, inhalers, intravenous solutions or any illegal drugs(cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine).

If you are unable to drop off unused or unwanted medications during the event, you may drop them off any time when an officer is at the Police Department.

Any questions may be directed to Toledo Police Chief Bob Kendall at 641-484-3013.
