The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction.
• The program is anonymous.  • Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications - tablets and capsules will be accepted.
• Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.
