DEA Drug Take-Back in Mahwah This Weekend

Drop off unused prescriptions to the police station.

DEA Drug Take-Back in Mahwah This Weekend

Residents can drop off unused prescription drugs this weekend as the Mahwah Police Department has announced it will take part in a national initiative to get unused drugs out of homes before they end up in the wrong hands.

The  DEA National Take-Back Initiative is happening this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the police station. Residents will be able to drop off any unwanted, unused, or expired medications, no questions asked. According to a release from police, the meds will be safely and properly disposed of.

The program "aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs while also educating the public about the potential abuse of medications," police said in the release. 

Past take-backs have been very successfully locally and on a national level. The initiative generally collects millions of pills at police stations across the country.
