DEA Announces National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

The Drug Enforcement Administration announced the 11th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will take place on April 30th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

As with the previous nine Take-Back events, sites will be set up nationwide so local residents can return their unwanted or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal.

From 2010-2014, DEA officials said more than 2,000 tons of unwanted medication were collected.

Community collection sites can be found by visiting dea.gov.

The site will be continuously updated with new take-back locations.
