Ohioans dispose of 14 tons of pills during National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
Ohioans properly disposed of an estimated 14 tons (28,263 pounds) of unneeded, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs during last Saturday’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back initiative provides a safe means of prescription drug disposal; as unused prescriptions in homes create a public health and safety concern because the medications can be accidentally misused and abused. Those who are still in possession of unneeded prescription drugs can drop them off at one of several drop box locations across the area.
