Drug Take Back

The Estes Park Police Department (EPPD) collects unused, unwanted and expired prescription and over-the-counter drugs for safe disposal - no questions asked - during Drug Take Back Days in April and October each year.

For additional information about EPPD Drug Take Back Days, contact Officer Gregg Filsinger at 970-577-3868 or 970-586-4000.

Ongoing medication take back is available Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Estes Park Health, located at 555 Prospect Ave. For additional information visit Estes Park Health's Medication Take-Back Station page.
