The next DEA National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be Saturday, October 23, 2021. National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. Amberley Village will participate from 10 am – 2 p.m., allowing residents and neighbors to drop off unused or expired prescriptions. Residents are asked to place prescription drugs into plastic storage bags before dropping them at the station. Prescription bottles are accepted for reuse at Matthew 25 Ministries.
The DEA will also accept vaping devices and cartridges at any of its drop-off locations during Take Back Day. It is important to note that DEA cannot accept devices containing lithium-ion batteries. If batteries cannot be removed prior to drop-off, DEA encourages individuals to consult with stores that recycle lithium-ion batteries.

Amberley Village is a year-round collection site, and accepts unused or expired prescriptions, vaping devices, and cartridges as described above 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
