Upcoming DEA National Drug Take Back Day

pill bottleThe federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will conduct a nationwide drug collection on Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Collections will be held at many locations around the state and are the best way to dispose of unused and unwanted pharmaceuticals to protect our environment. For more information and locations, visit DEA’s National Drug Take Back webpage.

In addition, DEA allows retail pharmacies and other entities to become authorized collectors, so there are medication drop box locations that are open year-round. Visit DEC’s Drugs in New York’s Waters webpage for more information about keeping drugs out of our waters.
