The 11th annual “Drug Take-Back Day” hosted by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 30, 2016. This event happens twice a year, where people can safely dispose of expired and no longer needed medications. These take backs allow for members of the community to dispose of medications properly so they do not enter the water supply or get into the wrong person’s hands. To participate in “Drug Take-Back Day,” visit the DEA’s webpage to find your nearest collection site.
In an effort to secure public safety and curb prescription medication misuse, the DEA has partnered with law enforcement agencies and pharmacies to create an easy and efficient disposal process. No cost is associated with participating in the disposal drive. In fall 2015, over 350 tons of medication was recovered from collection sites. Take advantage of this opportunity to continue the safe handling of prescription drugs.
Remember, if you or a loved one suffered a serious medical injury, side effect or death due to a defective pharmaceutical product, you may be eligible for a class action lawsuit.
