Windsor is taking part in National Drug Take Back Day April 28, 2012. The Windsor Police Department in a partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Windsor residents will be able to drop off unused or expired prescription drugs.

Drugs can be dropped off at the Windsor Police Department on Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 200 North 11th Street, Windsor. This gives the residents an opportunity to prevent drug abuse and theft.

ITEMS WHICH CANNOT BE ACCEPTED FOR TAKE BACK PROGRAMS include needles & sharps, mercury (thermometers), oxygen containers, chemotherapy/radioactive substances, pressurized canisters, or illicit drugs.

In 2010, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances. DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the Act.
