An Rx for Safe Disposal of Medications

Take-back events protect the community and the environment

Every April and October, National Prescription Drug Take Back Day raises awareness about the importance of properly disposing of prescription medications. Local take-back events are a safe, convenient, and environmentally friendly way to dispose of unused or expired prescription medications instead of letting them linger in medicine cabinets or enter the water supply.

Last October, Epic hosted its first take-back event and collected 95 pounds of medication.

Along with take-back events, many pharmacies provide take-back bins throughout the year. Find a collection site near you to dispose of unneeded medications safely.
