Pill Disposal Day April 26

The US Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency has declared April 26 to be National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.  Collection sites, primarily local police department offices, will provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, along with education about medication abuse.  The DEA announcement, including a link to a collection-site search, can be found at http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/index.html.  The CDC’s announcement, and justification for keeping prescription drugs out of the water supply, is at http://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/observances/pill_disposal.html.
