Drug Take-Back Day

Drug Take Back Day

Saturday, Oct. 22

On Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring your unwanted pills for disposal to:

  • Lyons Substation at 432 5th Avenue, Lyons
  • Boulder County Sheriff’s Office at 5600 Flatiron Parkway, Boulder, or 

The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, disposing of unwanted medicines by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, poses potential safety and health hazards.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs, and for a complete list of all the October 22 Take Back Day collection site locations, visit DEA Office of Diversion Control.

US-34 Big Thompson Canyon Repair Project Now Closed

via Colorado Department of Transportation

US 34 Big Thompson Canyon

US 34 is now closed between Estes Park and Loveland from mile point (MP) 77—just east of Drake—to MP 80 (Cedar Cove Road). See a map of the closure area.

The only vehicles permitted to travel through this work zone are emergency service vehicles and, at specific times of the day, people who live in the canyon or are doing business in the canyon.

All other through traffic traveling between Estes Park and Loveland should take the posted detour route. View a map of this detour route.

US 34 remains open to the east and west of this closure area, so anyone trying to get to a business on the east end of the canyon can still do so from the Loveland side, and anyone trying to get to a business on the west end of the canyon can still do so from the Estes Park side.

This section of US 34 will be closed until late May 2017 so crews can do rock blasting work and haul off materials as part of the permanent repairs being made to the highway following the 2013 flood.
