National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration was accepting old prescription drugs for disposal Saturday, the seventh National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
Everyone had an opportunity to dispose properly of unused or expired medications Saturday, dropping them off at sites around the state as part of National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
This is the weekend to properly dispose of those old, unused and expired medications without putting your drinking water at risk.
New Yorkers had a chance to safely get rid of prescription drugs they didn’t want or need at drop-off locations across the state on Saturday.
Do you want to help fight prescription drug abuse and the deadly consequences like the recent rash of pharmacy shootings? Well, Saturday was the day to do it. And all you had to do was check your medicine cabinet.
