National Drug Take Back Day & Gun Buyback

October 26, 2023

The Waterbury Police Department is participating in a pair of important events on Saturday that are aimed to boost public safety. 

Let's start with National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, which aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. 

The Waterbury Police Department will be holding its drive-thru style collection drive on Saturday, October 28 from 10 A.M. - 2 P.M. at the Waterbury Health Department parking lot on 185 South Main Street.

If you look at the image above, you can see that with each drug take back event, more prescription medication is being disposed of. We hope to break another record on Saturday, so please come out!

Waterbury PD is also participating in the annual statewide gun buyback event organized by Newtown Action Alliance. This important community safety initiative is a great opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted firearms from your home and receive a gift card.
