Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet Event

Clinton County, Iowa: The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, Clinton Police Department, and Camanche Police Department are holding two drive-through Medication and Vape take Back Events on Saturday, April 30, from 10AM until 2PM at:

·Clinton County Law Center/Courthouse Parking Lot at 241 7th Avenue, Clinton, Iowa,
·Camanche Police Department, 819 S. Washington Street, Camanche, Iowa.
At this event, residents can drive through and drop off their outdated or unneeded medication or vape/electronic cigarette devices. This event will be held regardless of the weather. You will remain in your car to drop off medication & vapes and can expect it to only take 5 minutes. Please note, that batteries must be removed from Vape devices and be placed in a sealed ziploc baggie. The vape batteries can also be collected at the event.
Local law enforcement is partnering with the local youth substance use coalitions, the Camanche DeWitt Coalition and the Gateway ImpACT Coalition and the Drug Enforcement Administration to hold the “Take Back Day” to help residents by collecting unused, unneeded, or expired medication and vapes/electronic cigarettes and disposing of it.
The purpose of the event is to provide a convenient opportunity for Clinton County residents to safely dispose of their unused or expired medications and vapes. Youth report having access to medication and vapes in their own home. We want to encourage residents to lock up their medication, and if it is no longer needed dispose of it.
