Take Back Day

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is a program of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) held twice a year to collect unwanted and unneeded medications. Collecting these medications prevents them from falling into the wrong hands and helps to decrease drug-related violence. 

HCSO hosts Take Back Day events around Hennepin County at rotating locations.
