National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled a National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day each year, generally from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity if you have accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications. For more information and to find a collection site near you, call (800) 882-9539 or visit the DEA search page.
