The next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be held on Saturday, October 23, 2021, from 10 AM to 2 PM. During the event, thousands of collection sites will be available across the country to accept unneeded prescription drugs, including controlled substances, for safe and legal disposal. This marks the 21st National Take Back Day event that Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has held.
National Prescription Drug Take Back Days are held twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Take Back Days give Americans the opportunity to prevent substance use disorders and overdose deaths by disposing of prescription drugs. In addition to opportunities provided by DEA Take Back Days, many locations offer medication disposal kiosks year-round.
