On April 29, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., multiple state agencies will provide Pennsylvanians with an opportunity to turn in expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs at various drug take-back locations across the commonwealth in observance of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.
These take-back locations are meant to prevent pill abuse and theft by providing residents a local place to rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs. These locations include police departments, pharmacies, fire stations and even DEA offices.
A result of Governor Wolf’s fight against the heroin and opioid epidemic, Pennsylvania now has 584 take-back locations in its 67 counties, making it easier for residents to find a location near them.
