National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Saturday, April 28, 2018 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

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.

It’s a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet! Protect our kids, families and the environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters.

Experts agree. Take-back programs are the first choice for responsible disposable of medications. Law enforcement, public health, and environmental professionals stand united in support of take-back programs, as the safest and most responsible way to dispose of unwanted and expired medicines.

No questions asked. You won’t be questioned about the medications you are returning.

It’s free. There is no cost to return your medications on Saturday, April 28th, or any other day of the year.
