Drug-Take-Back-Day

It’s time for Spring Cleaning and residents are urged to take advantage of several free sites at which to safely dispose of over the counter and prescription drugs. On Saturday, April 29 the City of Greeley will team up once more with the City of Evans, and UNC to provide sites for drop-off of unused or expired medications. Fostering safe and well-kept neighborhoods is a high priority, as is keeping this sensitive material out of Greeley’s water and area waste streams. 

The community drug disposal sites will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and include the following sites:

  • Greeley Police Headquarters (2875 10th St.);
  • UNC University Center (2045 10t Ave); and
  • Sam’s Club Parking lot in Evans (3247 23rd Ave.)

Residents may drop off unused or expired medications (no needles or sharps, mercury, oxygen containers, chemotherapy/radioactive substances, pressurized canisters or illicit drugs can be accepted).

Check the City of Greeley website greeleygov.com for more details or contact Greeley Police Department Neighborhood Action Team officer Matt Patella at 970-351-5443 for more information.
