The Sarasota Police Department will partner with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center, and Drug-Free Sarasota for DEA National Take Back Day on Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Residents can help prevent abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Drop boxes are at SPD headquarters at 2099 Adams Lane and at Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center, 1750 17th St. 

Drop-off sites can accept tablets, capsules, patches and other solid forms of prescription drugs. The DEA National Take Back Day is free and anonymous, with no question asked.

The drop box in the SPD lobby is available year-round. Glasser/Schoenbaum is a drive-through location that will also accept sharps and liquids.
