National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Sponsored by the Herkimer County Prevention Council and the Herkimer Police Department

What is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day?

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) created the National Take Back Initiative for state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States to safely dispose of prescription medications.

You can drop off your unwanted, unused, or expired prescription medications at this years’ local event.

Pills and patches will be accepted but liquids cannot be disposed of through the “drop boxes.”

You can also find more valuable information about safe handling prescriptions at the NYS OASAS website:

Facts:

70% of illegally used prescription drugs are obtained from a friend or relative. (By Parents, The Anti-Drug)

25% of Herkimer County teens reported illegally using medicines prescribed for someone other than themselves. (2009 Herkimer County Teen Assessment Project Survey).

For more information, please contact the Herkimer Prevention Council staff.
