Clear that Cabinet Tour ‘24

April 18, 2024By Larry K. Houck

Medicine cabinet, stuffed to the gills
Capsules, liquid, patches, and pills
Expired oxy, hydro, benzos, and more
All kind of old meds flowing out the door

We will, we will, clear you
We will, we will, clear you

Back by popular demand, coming to a collection site in your town for one day only, is a return of the ever popular Drug Enforcement Administration’s (“DEA’s”) National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.  DEA, with its law enforcement partners, will host thousands of local drop-off locations nationwide for clearing out and proper disposal of unwanted expired and unneeded medication from medicine cabinets between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm local time on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

Drug Take Back Days have made appearances each spring and autumn since 2010.  Events over the years have led to the removal of more than 17.9 million pounds of unwanted medication across the country.  Last October’s Drug Take Back Day removed 600,000 pounds (300 tons) of medication at almost 4,700 collection sites.

Additional information about DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, including local disposal venues, can be found here.
