The DEA’s next Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is coming up on October 24, 2020!
Last fall we collected 26,263 pounds of unused or expired prescription drugs here in Tennessee. This is a great day to clean out unwanted medications while informing your community about the risks of prescription drug misuse.
This year may look a little different with social distancing, masks, and extra sanitation. Drive-thru drop offs have worked well in the past, as our friends in Monroe County collected 103.9 pounds during theirs this past spring!
Let us know if you need any assistance or materials! Also, be sure to send us the locations of your take-backs. (email@example.com or Julia.firstname.lastname@example.org )
We have created a virtual participant survey and QR code to help keep the take back contact free.
