DEA Heads First-Ever Nationwide Prescription Drug Take-Back Day – National Take-Back Initiative
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and government, community, public health, and law enforcement partners are holding a nationwide prescription drug “take-back” day. On September 25, 2010, collection sites around the country will take any expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs for safe, legal, and environmentally friendly disposal.
I checked my zip code the closest locations were at least a 40 minute drive. Which is surprising that the county I live in does not have a location and it is not a remote area. I doubt I would drive that far for a couple bottles of pills, if I had any to discard. Maybe they are continuing to add locations.
