Drug Surplus? Join DEA's Rx Take Back Day.

Have you guys heard about this? This is news to me (thanks to my trusty side-kick reporter of a husband), but it appears to be quite a thing. The Drug Enforcement Agency is holding their fourth National Prescription Take-Back-Day this Saturday from 10-2pm. What is Take-Back Day? It's an opportunity to safely dispose of accumulated, unused and unwanted prescription drugs so that they don't fall into the wrong hands. Wow. What a good idea. 


If you click on the website of the Office of Diversion Control, you can find out a little bit more about the Take-Back initiative, and you can find the closest disposal centers within your zipcode. When I checked, there were more than 15 established drop-offs within a 12-mile radius of Gorman headquarters. At least I have options! 


Take a look at the details below, and search the locations nearest you here. How many pounds of pills were collected in the last Take-Back day? 377,086 pounds (188.5 tons) of unwanted or expired medications. Now THAT is an initiative!
