National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs. There will also be educational resources available.
In last year's initiative, troopers collected over 2,400 pounds of prescription drugs. Nationally, 700,000 pounds of prescription medications were collected from members of the public.
