Safe Storage & Disposal
Safely Dispose of Unused & Expired Medications
Community take-back locations allow residents to bring expired or unwanted medicines to a convenient, centralized location for proper disposal. Residents may also go to selected locations to request a mail-back package for expired or unwanted medicines.
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
