Is your medicine cabinet full of expired drugs or medications you no longer use?

Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That can be dangerous and often tragic. The best way to dispose of these medicines is through a drug take back program. 

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is April 27. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration sponsors this day to address a crucial public safety and public health issue. It’s a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired medications. 

During last years event, there were over 4,000 collection sites and over 300 tons were collected.
