The University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department is participating in the fourth National Take Back Initiative with the DEA on April 27.
The initiative aims to make people's homes and communities a safer place by giving them the opportunity to bring in their unwanted or expired medications to the Police Department for safe disposal.
This event normally occurs on Saturday, however to accommodate the campus community, the UWPD event will be a day early, on Friday, April 27.
People can drop of medications without even getting out of their vehicles. They can just drive in, dump their medications into a bucket that one of the department's uniformed officers will be holding and drive off.
No information will be taken, and the whole process should take less than a minute. No needles or aerosols, no containers (All liquids must be in their original containers.) For convenience, people should just bring their medications in a plastic bag.
