National Drug Take Back Day

On Saturday, April 28th, 2018 from 10AM to 2PM, communities will have the opportunity to participate in this year’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. You can call the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA’s) Registration Call Center at 1-800-882-9539 or check www.takebackday.dea.gov  for collection sites in your area. The website will be continuously updated with new take-back locations.

Consumers may also continue to utilize the guidelines How to Dispose of Unused Medicines as posted by the FDA on their website at www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/Consumers if they are not able to attend a scheduled Take-Back Day.

The DEA began hosting National Prescription Drug Take-Back events in 2010 to promote the safe and proper disposal of unwanted, unneeded or expired medications.
