National Takeback Initiative
The 7th Annual National Takeback Initiative will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from10am to 2pm.  The National Takeback Initiative is a safe way to get rid of unwanted and expired medication.  It will be held in the lobby of the Annapolis Police Department at 199 Taylor Avenue. 

It is completely anonymous, no identification is requested of people disposing of prescription medications, and people are therefore encouraged to remove identifying labels from containers.  Liquid medications should be in a sealed container to prevent leakage (ziplock bag).  Other medications will be disposed of directly into the disposal box, and their original containers can be put in a recycling bin.  We are NOT accepting needles or injectibles.  Any other type of medication is accepted (controlled, non-controlled, or over the counter).

Here's a link to the DEA's web page that talks about this ongoing collaborative effort between the DEA and state and local law enforcement agencies to prevent prescription drug abuse:  http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/index.html

The above page will also direct you to a page to find drop off locations across the country.

Starting November 1, 2013 citizen fingerprinting will be offered Mondays from 5pm to 8pm instead of Tuesdays.
