Saturday Is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
This year, the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, April 27. Drug Take Back Day is held each year in the fall and spring.
The public is asked to safely discard any unwanted or unused prescription drugs at an authorized collection site.
