Spring is in the air — and with that comes spring cleaning! While tidying up, you may come across some unused and expired prescriptions. Most people don’t know how to safely dispose of these medications and improperly discarding them can cause a public safety issue. An easy solution is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, held on April 27 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Twice a year, the Drug Enforcement Administration holds National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. At selected locations, unwanted, unused or expired medications will be safely and anonymously collected. Visit takebackday.dea.gov to find a collection site near you. Mark your calendars!
If you miss the event on April 27, go to the website above to locate an authorized collector for year-round drug disposal.
