Drug Enforcement Administration to Collect Prescription Drugs
The federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will conduct a nationwide prescription drug collection on Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Properly disposing of drugs keeps them out of our lakes, streams and rivers. Collections will be held at many locations around New York and are the best way to dispose of unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Collection locations in New York can be found on DEA’s National Take Back Initiative webpage.
For law enforcement agencies that wish to host a collection site please call the POC in your area.
