Mark your calendars for Utah Take Back Day on Saturday, October 26th from 10AM to 2PM across the state.
Sponsored by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Take Back Day provides the opportunity to safely and anonymously dispose of unused and expired prescriptions. When unused prescriptions are left in the house, you can unintentionally become a dealer. Appropriate disposal of prescriptions prevents any misuse of these medications.
Protect your loved ones by participating in Utah Take Back Day this Saturday, October 27th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Utah Take Back, a bi-annual event in April and October, is a day set aside to help this great state properly dispose of unused, expired, or unwanted prescriptions. Last April our local law enforcement partners collected 17,364 pounds of prescriptions drugs!
