National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day – Oct. 26, 2013
On Saturday, Oct. 26, the DEA will be holding National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you will be able to anonymously dispose of your excess prescription and over-the-counter medications at any of numerous collection sites. In the Morristown, NJ area, more than 90 collection sites will be made available to you.
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is intended to help people to safely dispose of their excess medications. As we know, unused medication can be a dangerous lure for those who suffer from drug problems. Additionally, if you attempt to dispose of prescription or over-the-counter medications yourself by flushing them or pouring them down the drain, you can damage our water systems. If you throw away your unused medications, animals or plants can be harmed by them as well.
