National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

04/27/2013 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Unused and unwanted prescription drugs in our home can find their way into our drinking water supply when they are flushed down the toilet.

These same drugs may get into the hands of children and teenagers if left in unlocked cabinets and drawers.  Round up your medications and properly dispose of them for FREE at the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
