National Drug Take Back Day
Collection sites nation-wide will be accepting unwanted medications on Saturday, April 28
Clean out your cupboards — it’s time for another National Drug Take Back Day!
Does the back of your medicine cabinet look like a Rx graveyard? From expired allergy pills to unused post-op pain medicine, nearly every house is bound to have one or two unneeded medications laying around. However, stockpiling these expired, unwanted or unused prescriptions can be very dangerous.
To prevent medication-related injuries or incidents, the National Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) created Take Back Day — a one-day country-wide program for safe, convenient and responsible drug disposal.
This year’s DEA Take Back Day is Saturday, April 28th. Starting at 10 a.m., designated collection sites around the nation will be accepting unwanted pills — no questions asked. Please keep in mind that this program is for pill and patch medications only. Collection sites will not accept liquids, needles, or other sharps.
Help keep your family, community and yourself safe by participating in Take Back Day 2018! Click here to find a collection site near you.
