DEA’s 18th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Scheduled for October 26th
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is promoting Saturday, October 26, 2019, as its 18th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Held twice each year in April and October, the objective of the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on October 26th, the public will have the opportunity to rid from their homes potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Individuals are encouraged to participate.
Last April, Americans turned in 468 tons of prescription drugs safely at over 6,200 sites operated by DEA and state and local law enforcement partners.
