Safe Disposal

Safe Disposal EVENTS

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) holds a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day twice a year in April and October. These are usually held on the last Saturday of the month between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. Sites are set up throughout communities nationwide so local residents can return their unwanted, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal. As each Take Back Day approaches, their website is continuously updated with new collection locations.

Safe disposal units are also available in many communities. Check the Safe Disposal page for more information.
