Got leftover prescription medicine?

If you have prescription medicine that you no longer use and would like to throw away, the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day takes place April 27, 2019 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. (local time zones across the U.S.) This day offers a simple, safe and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs. It also aims to educate the general public about the potential for medication abuse.
