Drug Take Back Results
During the event, conducted at both Moorhead Hornbacher's locations, the Moorhead Police Department collected 174 pounds of unwanted, expired, or unused prescription drugs.
Last spring Americans turned in nearly 475 tons (949,046 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,700 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 15 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in almost 10 million pounds—nearly 5,000 tons—of pills.
Those who were unable to attend the event, and have unwanted prescription drugs, can bring them to the Moorhead Police Department, 911 11 St N, and place them in the drug take back depository located in the main entry.
