National Take-Back Day

Submitted on Apr 24, 2012


The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, to be held on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to dispose of those medications easily and safely. Americans who participated in the DEA's third take-back event last fall turned in more than 188 tons of unwanted or expired medications at 5,327 take-back sites for proper disposal.
