On Saturday, April 25, 2020, between 10:00am and 2:00pm, the Klamath Falls Police Department will host a Prescription Drug Take Back Event. This is the 19th opportunity the Klamath Falls Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has provided the public in the past seven years.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.


Bring your pills for disposal to Klamath Falls Police Department at 2501 Shasta Way. Please note, we cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps. ONLY pills and patches will be accepted for disposal. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the Take Back Day event on April 25th, call the Klamath Falls Police Department at (541) 883-5336.

The event is located at Klamath Falls Police 2501 Shasta Way.
