National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

CREATED Apr. 26, 2013

Omaha, NE - The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

It's happening across the U.S. on Saturday, April 27, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications.

It's been a successful program so far.  In 2010, DEA agents and police officers nationwide, took in over 2 million pounds of expired prescription drugs.
