Got Drugs? Take Them to the DEA Sept. 25

Take-Back Day The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and state and local law enforcement officials are organizing collection sites nationwide to take-back ?unused, unwanted or expired? over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs.

Leftover prescription and OTC drugs present a public health hazard given the potential for accidental poisoning, abuse, and overdose. They can also pose environmental hazards from unsafe disposal.

The National Take-Back Day is Saturday, Sept. 25, between 10 am – 2 pm.

The DEA has an easy-to-use online tool to locate a collection site near you. The collection is anonymous. See the DEA website for details on what is (and isn?t) accepted.

(You might also consider telling a friend or colleague about the Take-Back Day.)
