National Drug Take-Back Day

On Sept. 29, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day due to the overwhelming turnout of the previous event held in April.

On April 28, 2012, citizens across the country turned in 552,161 pounds of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal. The event this September is a great opportunity for anyone who missed the previous event or who has accumulated unwanted or unused prescriptions since April.

There were 4,268 agencies who participated with the DEA in April.

Proper disposal of prescriptions is crucial in raising awareness of drug abuse and eliminating the possibility of pharmaceutical injuries by mistakenly consuming expired medications.

If you have unwanted or unused drugs that you would like to dispose of on Sept. 29, the following sites will be participating in the event:
