National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday Oct. 22

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman encouraged New Yorkers to mark the 11th annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 22nd, by disposing of unused drugs at Take-Back Day sites and drop boxes that are available year-round. Prescription Drug Take-Back Days are organized twice a year by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in conjunction with state and local officials to provide a safe, convenient, and legal way to dispose of unused prescription drugs so that they are not susceptible to abuse. Individuals can turn in drugs anonymously, whether the drugs were prescribed to them or not. Find a location near you, click HERE.
