The Feds want to help you get rid of unwanted prescription drugs
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and its national and community partners will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30, the DEA and its partners will hold their second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at sites nationwide. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
The public can find a nearby collection site by visiting <http://www.dea.gov>, clicking on the “Got Drugs?” icon, and following the links to a database, where they enter their zip code.
Law enforcement agencies interested in operating one or more collection sites on April 30 can register with the DEA by calling the DEA Field Division office in their area.
(To see each division office’s geographic area of responsibility, go to <http://www.dea.gov> and click on the “office locations” link under “About Us” in the menu on the left side of the home page.)
