The Denver Police Department is encouraging residents to check their medicine cabinets for unwanted or unused medications and to drop them off at one of the nine participating Denver Police locations for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 30, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The goal of this event is to ensure the environmentally-safe disposal of prescription medicines. Medicines that have been flushed down the toilet may end up in the water supply. Disposal of prescriptions can also help avoid drug misuse or abuse.
