The Next Biannual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is set for Saturday, April 27, 2024.
This event gives you an opportunity to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
The drug overdose epidemic in the United States is a clear and present public health, public safety and national security threat.
Locations listed are those that have been reported to us, but is by no means an exhaustive list:
If you can't make it out to one of these locations on Saturday, there are several disposal options including local drug stores and some lobbies in Police Departments accessed during normal business hours.
To find additional locations, or to learn more, please visit:

Although recyclable materials are picked up from the curb in garbage trucks, the trucks make a separate trip after emptying household garbage. Recyclable materials are taken from the curb to Sonoco Recycling in Columbia where automated machines and people separate, bundle and sell them. The better we are at putting the correct materials in our curbside containers, the easier, safer, and less expensive it is to sort them.
For more information, contact Laura Anne Hunt, Recycling Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
