The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency is partnering with local law enforcement and municipalities throughout the country to hold a prescription drug take-back day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, September 29.
You can use this free service to get rid of your old, expired or other unwanted medications. Safely getting rid of medications you don’t need anymore helps keep children and pets from getting poisoned. It also helps keep the medications from getting into the water supply and from being abused to get high.
Medication take-back events are one of the best ways to get rid of your old medications. Check out the DEA’s take-back page to find a location near you!
