The Drug Enforcement Agency again offers the public an opportunity to drop off unused and or expired medications (including DEA controlled medications) from 10 am to 2 pm this Saturday, April 29. Find a site near you.
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs. In October 2016, Americans turned in 366 tons (more than 730,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,200 sites. In 12 previous events, the DEA and its partners have taken in more than 7.1 million pounds—more than 3,500 tons—of pills.
