Drug Disposal Sites

Prescription Drug Abuse has become an epidemic across the county. So what can you do to stop prescription drug abuse?  Dispose of your unwanted medications properly.  It has been found that the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.

Three hundred and nine (309) tons of unwanted prescription drugs were collected at the last and final Prescription Drug Take Back Day in September of 2014 at 5,495 sites. This brought the total amount of drugs collected in four years to 4,823,251 pounds, or 2,411 tons. The locations were manned by 4,312 state, local, and tribal law enforecement agencies that partnered with the DEA on the events in the United States.

The great news is you don’t have to wait for a Prescription Drug Take Back Day anymore. Since the last Prescription Drug Take Back Day in September of 2014 new regulations authorize certain DEA registrants to modify their registration with the DEA to become authorized collectors. In the Washington County area we have several collection sites that are now open throughout the year.
