Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday: Locations in Oxford

Published 8:35 am Wednesday, April 26, 2017

The National drug take back day arrives this weekend, as a means of taking dangerous drugs from homes so they don’t reach people that don’t need them.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.

It’s happening on April 29th and is hosted by the Drug Enforcement Agency, but law enforcement around the country participate and allow you to drop off old, unused prescriptions.
