On Saturday, April 26, the Baltimore County Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will collect potentially dangerous prescription/medication drugs from area residents. The DEA National Take Back Initiative is an effort by law enforcement to get unused, and in some cases, dangerous prescription drugs out of the house and disposed of in a safe and secure manner.

The following precincts have been designated as drop off locations.

  • Precinct 2/Woodlawn, 6424 Windsor Mill Road, Woodlawn 21207
  • Precinct 7/Cockeysville, 111 Wight Avenue, Cockeysville 21030
  • Precinct 12/North Point, 1747 Merritt Boulevard, Baltimore 21222

The public should use this opportunity to discard potentially dangerous prescription medications. Those dropping off a controlled and/or non-controlled substance will not be asked questions about the drop-off, nor will they be asked for identification.

Residents should drop off medications in the original packaging, or remove them and place the drugs into the disposal box. Liquid medications should be tightly sealed and in the original containers. Remove any identifying information on the prescription label. Over-the-counter drugs will also be accepted.

Illicit drugs or syringes will not be accepted, as these items can pose a health hazard to those collecting the drugs.
