National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. National Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs.

Last fall's Take-Back Day event collected a record-setting 912,305 pounds of prescription drugs. The Drug Enforcement Administration first launched its Take-Back Day in 2010, and since then has collected more than 9 million pounds of medicine from the public.
