National Take-Back Day is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency and other agencies and aims to keep old and expired prescription drugs from falling into the hands of those who might abuse them. It invites people to remove old, expired, unwanted or questionable prescriptions safely and to properly dispose of them.

The program has been in effect for several years, according to Murphy’s news release, and has succeeded in removing tons of prescription drugs.

Drug disposal helps

  • Pharmacy take back: Many pharmacies have a ‘Take-Back Program’ allowing you to drop off your unused or expired medications. Check with your local pharmacist to see if this is an option.
