Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has anounced another opportunity for consumers to dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs during the ninth DEA  National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, September 27, 2014. On this day, thousands of collection sites will be available across the country to accept unneeded prescription drugs, including controlled substances, for safe and legal disposal. Since 2010, DEA's Take-Back Day initiative has collected a combined total of 4.1 million pounds of unneeded medications, helping to prevent diversion, misuse, and abuse of the drugs. More information about the DEA Take-Back Days, local medication disposal programs, and methods for safe home disposal of drugs is available in the "Find Disposal Information" section of the AWARE Prescription Drug Safety Program website.  The DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day collection site locator is now available online.
