Fall National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, October 23
Keep your home safe by disposing of expired and unused prescriptions and over-the-counter medications on Saturday, October 23 during National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
Drop off medications between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at DeGraff Medical Park and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. For a list of other participating sites throughout the community, visit https://takebackday.dea.gov/.
Disposing of medications in a proper way prevents people from pouring drugs down sinks or into toilets, contaminating the water system. It also removes the drugs from homes for illicit use.
Kaleida Health offers prescription drug take back days each fall and spring. Safely dispose of drugs at any time of the year at one of the Community Disposal Kiosk Sites in Erie County.
To keep everyone safe, collection sites will follow local COVID-19 guidelines and regulations.
