The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and more than 4,200 national, tribal, and community law enforcement partners will hold another National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 22. Americans can take their pills (no liquids or needles) to one of over 5,600 collection sites across the country between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. local time. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, in cooperation with Operation Medicine Cabinet and other collection programs, protect our children, our water and our food supplies, and decrease prescription drug abuse by making it easier for you to dispose of unused or expired medications. This is completely confidential. No personal information is collected. Please remove all prescription labels before arriving at disposal locations.
