National Take Back Day - Delaware County

September 19, 2012 12:44:40 PM PDT
Officials in Delaware County are hoping you can help them keep drugs out of the wrong hands.

District Attorney John Whelan joined local law enforcement today to announce Take-Back Day.

The initiative is part of the DEA's national program that asks people to drop off potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

At "Take Back" events, collection sites will anonymously accept both prescription and over-the-counter products that are tablets or capsules with no questions asked. However, any intravenous solutions, injectables, needles, or illegal substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine will not be accepted. This effort is specifically for prescription and over-the-counter medications only. You can get more information at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency website.
