Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has announced another opportunity for consumers to dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs during the 11th DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, which will be held April 30, 2016. On this day, from 10 AM to 2 PM, thousands of collection sites will be available across the country to accept unneeded prescription drugs, including controlled substances, for safe and legal disposal. To date, DEA’s Take-Back Day initiative has collected a combined total of more than 5.5 million pounds (over 2,750 tons) of unneeded medications, helping to prevent diversion, misuse, and abuse of the drugs. More information about safely disposing of medications at home and finding a permanent local drug disposal program is available in the Dispose Safely section of the AWARXE® website.
