The Bloomington Police Department is partnering with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to host a drug take back event on Saturday, October 28, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., at the Bloomington Police Department, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road.
The non-medical use of prescription drugs is a common form of drug abuse in America. Unused and expired prescription medications are a public safety issue. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.
If you are unable to attend the drug take back event, many pharmacy medicine drop boxes are available in Bloomington for proper disposal. Some local drop boxes can be found at CVS, 8936 Lyndale Avenue, Fairview Pharmacy, 600 West 98th Street and Walgreens, 9800 Lyndale Avenue. Medicines should be brought to a medicine drop box for safe and proper disposal.
