The past few years, my honey Ted and I have done our part to keep our unwanted medications out of others hands. We depose of our unwanted medications properly. One of the easiest ways is during the DEA Take Back Day!

A majority of medications are obtained from family and friends, many times from the medicine cabinets in homes.The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for folks to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. It's important to get rid of unwanted medications / vapes responsibly. Also for the environment where trashing and flushing medications pollute our planet.  A Big Win for the wellbeing of many and the environment. 

Get your unwanted medications together. Put them in a bag or box. You can seal them. You just drop them off at locations that are set up for Take Back Day. No questions asked. It's simple and easy. DEA Take Back Day in the Austin area is Saturday, October 24 from 10a-2pm. Click here to find a drop off location near your neighborhood.
