DEA National Drug Take Back Day

National Drug Take Back Day
Saturday, April 27 | 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Do you have expired or unwanted medications? Anonymously, safely and easily get rid of unwanted prescription drugs. Keep your loved ones safe. Alarmingly, the majority of teenagers who abuse prescription drugs first get them from a family member. Simply throwing them away is not the answer. Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved, abused or illegally sold. They also contaminate the water supply. You can help prevent all this by properly disposing of unused or expired medications on National Take Back Day.
