Pill Take Back Event

The Hendersonville Police Department is partnering with the Council on Aging to offer a Pill Take Back Event on Wednesday, April 13, 2022. The event will take place at the Council on Aging office located at 105 King Creek Boulevard in Hendersonville from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Residents and community members are encouraged to do some spring cleaning and empty out their medicine cabinets of unused and expired medications. Properly disposing of medication and keeping them secure can prevent accidental poisoning, protect the environment, and avoid medications falling into the wrong hands.

Accepted items include prescription pills, prescription patches, prescription ointments, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, samples, and medications for pets. Sharps, needles, epi-pens, radioactive medications, chemotherapy medications, glass jars, and aerosols are not able to be accepted.

For those unable to attend the event, a permanent medication drop box is available in the Hendersonville Police Department lobby located at 630 Ashe Street.

For additional information about the pill take back event, contact Tiffni Baxley at tbaxley@coahc.org.
