Most people don’t know how to safely dispose of these medications and improperly discarding these medicines can cause a public safety issue. An easy solution is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, held on October 26, 2019 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Twice a year, the Drug Enforcement Administration holds National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. At selected locations, unwanted, unused or expired medications will be safely and anonymously collected. Visit takebackday.dea.gov to find a collection site near you.
