Medicine Take Back
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Adams County DRUG TAKE BACK began in September 2010 as part of the national effort by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Local and state police partner with Collaborating For Youth (CFY), local government and environmental agencies, community volunteers and various health organizations to sponsor Adams County's Medication TAKE BACK at several locations throughout Adams County. Each medication TAKE BACK provides an opportunity for Adams County residents to dispose of unused or expired medications safely. The collection is free and no questions are asked.
