Take back your prescription drugs on Saturday, April 29

Take Back DrugsSaturday is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Medications in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning. If you’ve stopped taking a prescription or it’s expired, it’s time to dispose of it. In addition, if you leave unused prescription drugs in your bathroom cabinet, teens or others may steal them and become addicted to prescription drugs.

If you flush drugs down the toilet or put them in the trash, the water and land is polluted.

Clean out your medicine cabinet regularly. Dispose of all unused prescription drugs using take-back sites.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday you can take back medications to a site near you. Go to at this website to find a location:
