National Rx Drug Take-Back Day - September 26
The Drug Enforcement Administration will host the 11th annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, September 26, 2015. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. Last year, more than 600,000 pounds of medications were turned in for safe disposal at 5,495 sites across the US.
