Get rid of prescription drugs in Farmington Hills

Because expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs in homes can create a safety hazard and contribute to drug abuse, Farmington Hills Police Department will host an April 30 Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

This collaborative effort with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will safely and anonymously remove potentially dangerous medications from homes throughout the community. Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., residents of any city may drop off prescription drugs, in any type of container, at the DEA-provided collection box that will be located inside Police Headquarters, 31655 W. 11 Mile Rd.

The drop off and pick up of prescription drugs will be supervised by officials from both the DEA and the Police Department.

During last September’s Take Back Day, the department collected 105 pounds of prescription drugs, which were then destroyed by the DEA. For more information, call 248-871-2770.
