Drug Take-Back Event


On Saturday, October 23, 2021, the Boxborough Police Department will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) twenty-first nationwide, one-day collaborative prescription drug take-back initiative event with other state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s homes. This national initiative provides an opportunity for the public to surrender pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply for the increasing abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in the United States and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety every day. 


The collected medications will be disposed of at designated incineration facilities located throughout New England that will convert the pharmaceutical waste into clean, renewable energy for use by local communities. Since 2010, this initiative has resulted in over 1.4 million pounds of pharmaceutical waste collected over twenty drug take-back events in New England. I hope that the Boxborough Police Department can garner community support so that we can work together and reduce this growing problem.


Medications are accepted in our 24/7 drop box located in the Boxborough Police Department lobby.
