The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will be holding the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 24, 2021. In an effort to address a crucial public safety and public health issue, collection sites will be set up nationwide to assist in the disposal of any unwanted, unused or expired prescription medication.
Too often, unused drugs find their way into the wrong hands. Join the thousands of individuals across the country who are cleaning out their medicine cabinets and turning in – safely and anonymously – a record amount of prescription drugs.
During the 19th National Take Back in October 2020, over 4,500 collection sites across the United States and territories collected a total of 985,392 lbs.

Don’t be surprised by what is in your medicine cabinet. If you haven’t used them, don’t need them, or they’re expired, secure your meds and drop them off at #TakeBackDay on April 24, 2021! #TipTuesdayhttps://t.co/vJNotWwtKW pic.twitter.com/idfaGOSspb
