Take Back Day graphicNational Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be October 28, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. 

The Drug Enforcement Administration first launched its "Take-Back" day more than six years ago and since then has collected more than 8.1 million pounds of prescription drugs from the public. 

Check out DEA's Take Back Day website for information and to find collection sites near you.
