The Amberley Village Police-Fire Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration would like residents to participate in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place this Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.

The last Take-Back Day brought in more than 900,000 pounds of unused or expired prescription medication.  This brings the total amount of prescription drugs collected by DEA since the fall of 2010 to 10,878,950 pounds.

Simply bring your pills or patches for disposal to the Amberley Village Police-Fire Department, 7149 Ridge Road.  No liquids, creams, empty containers, needles or sharps accepted.  This is a free and anonymous service.  No questions asked.

The Amberley Village Police-Fire Department has also made it possible for residents to drop-off unwanted prescriptions anytime throughout the year, 24-hours a day.
