[ARCHIVED] City of Williamsburg to Host Drug Take Back Event

The Williamsburg Police and Fire departments will host a Drug Take Back Event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021, at the Williamsburg Fire Station, 440 N. Boundary St.

Bring any expired or unused prescription or over-the-counter medications, including those that contain controlled substances, to be safely and securely gathered and disposed of. The Williamsburg Fire Department will have sharps containers available for the disposal of sharps or needles. All medications dropped off during this event will be destroyed.

It is a drive-through event, so participants do not need to exit their vehicles.

The City’s participation is part of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's National Drug Take Back Initiative, which aims to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths by providing people with an opportunity to dispose of unused or expired medications. Studies show that the majority of misused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
