April 24 is DEA National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will host its National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 24, from 10 am – 2 pm.

This semi-annual event provides Americans with an opportunity to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths by properly disposing their unwanted, unused, or expired prescription medications in a safe manner.

Here is a list of participating collection sites in Ohio, and here is a list of permanent drop-box locations.
