National Drug Take Back Day

Event Date(s): 


The Board of County Commissioners would like to encourage all residents to participate in the National Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 27 by disposing of unwanted or expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.  An additional drop-off location has been established for this day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Charles County Government Parking Lot (200 Baltimore Street, La Plata).

Your participation in this program makes a difference.  The Charles County Drug Take Back program collected 111 pounds at the April and October 2018 Drug Take Back Day.  Be a part of this safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of medications.

For additional locations, visit one of the pharmacies participating in the Drug Take Back Program: Family Meds, Inc., Hanson Pharmacy, High Street Discount Pharmacy, Indian Head Care Pharmacy, La Plata Pharmacy, Northgate Pharmacy, and MedSurg Pharmacy.
