Prescription Drug Take-Back Event


For the sixth year, Northfield is participating in the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.  Residents can bring unneeded prescriptions to the Police Department (350 Walnut Street) on April 28th from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM for safe disposal.  Please note that needles, syringes, creams, and liquids cannot be accepted.

This event aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of drugs, while also educating about the potential for abuse of medications. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs (including dangerous opioids) are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.

The Environmental Protection Agency discourages flushing unneeded prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs down the toilet or drain unless the label or accompanying patient information specifically instructs you to do so.  This keeps medicines from entering our waterways and harming the environment and drinking water.
