On April 27, 2019, the United States Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Administration are running an awareness campaign and drive to provide education and site locations for people to bring prescription drugs that they no longer need to be properly disposed of. The campaign is called the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day and the goal is two-fold a) To provide information to and educate the public in what the laws are governing the disposal of prescription medications and b) To provide locations where people can bring their expired medications or medications that they no longer need. The DEA’s Diverson Control Division has a site locator where you can find a place near you to take your old prescriptions.
Visit the DEA Diversion Control Division to learn more and be sure to clean out your medicine cabinet this spring!
