DEA’s Announces Prescription Drug Take Back Day

10/26/2017

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, to be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

This is a great opportunity for those who missed previous events, or who have since accumulated unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs, to dispose of those medications easily and safely.
