The BPD is partnering with Broomfield Public Health and Environment, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
We will be collecting expired or unused medication free of charge. Participants may dispose of medication in its original container, or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. If an original container is submitted, residents are encouraged to remove any identifying information from the prescription label.
