What: The Second National Drug Take Back Day is a great opportunity for those who missed the first event or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of them.  

When:  April 30, 2011. 10am to 2pm.

Why:  This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, according to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health.  Drugs that are dumped down drains and toilets can end up in our lakes, streams, and watersheds.  By participating in the drug take-back day you will protect public health and safety and protect the environment.

Where: Further information about the second National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, including a link to locate a collection site near you, will be posted on this website.
