DEA announces upcoming Rx drug take back day

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced that its 20th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is scheduled for April 24. As described in the press release, the public can drop off potentially dangerous prescription medications at collection sites which will adhere to local COVID-19 guidelines and regulations. At the DEA’s last Take Back Day in October, the agency collected close to 500 tons of unwanted drugs and, over the 10-year span of Take Back Day, the DEA has brought in more than 6,800 tons of prescription drugs. The Take Back Day website includes a collection site locator, several public service announcements to encourage participation in the event, results from previous Take Back Days, and other resources related to unused prescription medications.
