2020 National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Proper disposal of unused or expired prescription medications saves lives and protects the environment. When left in a cabinet or on a shelf, they are a public safety issue that too often tragically leads to accidental poisoning, drug misuse and abuse, and overdoses.  

The Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be held on October 24, 2020, providing an easy, eco-friendly way for people to discard medicines they no longer need. This service is free, with no questions asked. In 2019, over 6,250 Take Back Day sites across the US collected 937,443 pounds of medications.
