Drug Take Back Day results

The DeLand Police Department filled up four boxes with prescription drugs during Saturday's National Drug Take Back Day event with the total weight of the boxes coming in at 62.4 lbs.

Thank you to all who dropped off their unwanted and expired prescription drugs.

If people were unable to make it to the take back day, here are some tips on how to dispose of the drugs:

  • Remove the medicine from its original container and and mix it with an undesirable substance like coffee grounds or cat litter.
  • Place the mixture in a sealable bag.
  • Scratch out all identifying information on the prescription drug labels to make it unreadable.
