The next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be later this year. National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.
The October 2018 Take-Back Day brought in more than 900,000 pounds of unused or expired prescription medication.
This brings the total amount of prescription drugs collected by DEA since the fall of 2010 to 10,878,950 pounds.
Check DEA's official Take Back Day website for more information and to find year-round collection sites near you.
