Drug Take Back Events & Medication Drop Box

2024 Drug Take Back Events

The City of Dublin and Dublin Police are committed to working to end the opiate crisis in Central Ohio and around the nation. Drug Take Back events provide a free, safe way for community members to rid their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs. This limits the exposure to and abuse of drugs in the community. The service is free and anonymous.

In order to support faster response and better tracking of requests, the City of Dublin uses JustFOIA to collect, respond to and manage public information requests.

Why JustFOIA?
