Klamath Falls, Ore. - On October 28, 2017, between 10:00am and 2:00pm, the Klamath Falls Police Department will host a Drug Take Back Event. This is the 14th opportunity the Klamath Falls Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has provided the public in the past six years. The goal is to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
Bring your pills for disposal to Klamath Falls Police Department at 2501 Shasta Way. Please note, we cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps. ONLY pills and patches will be accepted for disposal. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last April, Americans turned in 450 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,000 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. When those results are combined with what was collected in its 12 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 5.5 million pounds—more than 2,750 tons—of pills.
For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the Take Back Day event on April 29th, call the Klamath Falls Police Department at (541) 883-5336.
