NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY RESUMES ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2020
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
During the October of 2019 the Drug Take Back event brought in 882,919 pounds (Almost 442 Tons) of unused or expired prescription medications and vape devices. This brings the total amount of prescription drugs collected by the DEA since the fall of 2010 to nearly 12.7 million pounds.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, collection sites may be limited so please visit the Take Back Day website for a list of locations.
