DEA Drug Take-Back Day Another Huge Success

On Saturday, April 29th, the Hoover Police Department and the D.E.A. collected unwanted, unused and expired prescription drugs at Hoover City Hall. With this year’s program only a week after the Household Hazardous Materials Day at the Hoover Met, we made this a 2-day event and collected drugs on back-to-back Saturdays.

We filled a total of 45 boxes with 827 pounds of unwanted and expired drugs that can no longer be at-risk for getting into the wrong hands. Thanks again to the D.E.A. for sponsoring this event and most of all, thanks to the citizens of Hoover for making our City safer!
That’s 827 pounds of drugs that will never be stolen, sold or abused!
