Saturday, April 28th is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. 

Last fall’s Take-Back Day collected a record-setting 912,305 pounds of prescription drugs. The Drug Enforcement Administration first launched Take-Back Day in 2010 and since then has collected more than 9 million pounds of medicine from the public.
 
There are collection sites throughout Maryland that will be accepting unused pills on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To find the nearest collection site head to takebackday.dea.gov.
