October 18, 2019


Loudoun County, VA – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, the Town of Leesburg Police Department, and the Town of Purcellville Police Department have once again partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the “Take-Back” initiative that seeks to prevent increased pill abuse and theft. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Loudoun County residents can discard potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction on Saturday, October, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at six sites in the county:

Ashburn Station
20272 Savin Hill Drive, Ashburn, VA 

Dulles South Public Safety Center
25216 Loudoun County Parkway, South Riding, VA

Eastern Loudoun Sheriff’s Station
46620 East Frederick Drive, Sterling, VA

Town of Leesburg Police Department at Wegman’s

101 Crosstrail Blvd., SE, Leesburg, VA

Town of Purcellville Police Department

125 Hirst Road, Suite 7-A, Purcellville, VA


Since the inception of the DEA take-back program in 2010, over 10,000 pounds of unwanted and unused prescription medications have been collected in Loudoun County. 

In addition to the Take-Back event, drug collection units are available throughout the year, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., at four of our stations. The drug collection units are located at the: 

Dulles South Public Safety Center 
25216 Loudoun County Parkway, Chantilly, VA
571-258-3200

Also, the Leesburg Police Department has a Prescription Medication Collection Unit available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Additionally, a Collection Unit is available at the Shenandoah Building, located at 102 Heritage Way, NE, in Leesburg.

LCSO asks residents to please share these locations and dates to help promote safe disposal of unwanted and unused medication. All too often prescriptions are flushed down the toilet or thrown away – both potential safety and health hazards.
