DEA National Take Back Day

April 22, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Turn in unneeded medication for safe disposal.

The City of Canal Winchester and Diley Ridge Medical Center, in cooperation with the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will host a National Prescription Drug Take Back event on Saturday, April 22, 2023, at the Diley Ridge Medical Center parking lot, 7911 Diley Rd., from 10 AM to 2 PM.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. Since 2010, DEA, along with its law enforcement partners, has collected over 16 million pounds of unneeded prescription medications. Canal Winchester’s collection site is set up in a convenient stop and drop model, allowing those discarding unwanted prescription drugs to remain in their vehicles, drop medications with collection agents, and continue on their way.

The City of Canal Winchester thanks partners and volunteers who have locally assisted in the DEA program, with special thanks to Diley Ridge Medical Center for use of their property.

Please note that collectors may only accept pills. Liquids (including inhalers and their refills), as well as needles or sharps, may not be dropped off. The service is free and anonymous; no questions asked.
