Saturday, April 26th is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. If you have unused or old prescription drugs tucked away in closets, drawers, or cabinets, April 26th is your day! National Drug Take Back Day is a great opportunity to safely dispose of unused prescription drugs. Getting those prescription drugs out of circulation protects us, our children, our pets, and the environment. Remember to check with your aging relatives and friends.
Take the time – search for a Collection Site near you. If you live in a rural area, click on the button that expands your search to a 25 mile radius. Put up a Collection Poster like this one, encouraging others to participate. You may leave the prescription drugs in their original bottles, or dump them into a bag. Either way, be assured your prescription drugs will be secured and your confidentiality protected. If you are not near a Collection Site, read more on How to Dispose of Medicines Properly. Drug Free Idaho has additional resources.
Please take the time to participate in the “Take Back” this Saturday. It may save someone’s life. It may even be yours.
