National Take-Back Day, Saturday, October 26, 2019 10:00 am-2:00 pm

National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.  
 
The City of Florence Police Department will be accepting your unused or expired prescription drugs on Saturday, October 26 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m at the Florence Government Center, 8100 Ewing Blvd, Florence, KY.  There will also be drop boxes at Kroger on Mall Rd, and Walmart on Doering Dr, Florence, KY,  41042.  To help combat the continued vaping health crisis across the country, DEA will be collecting vaping pens and cartridges at these collection sites.  DEA has determined that vaping pens without the internal batteries are considered household hazardous waste and can be co-mingled with other Take Back materials.  However, pens with batteries inside or not removable are considered a potential fire hazard and will not be accepted at any of these locations.
