10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back

DEA_TakeBackDayThe DEA’s10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back will take place September 26 from 10am to 2pm at the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Offices in Chantilly and Sterling.

Take-Back sites will be collecting unwanted, unneeded or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal. You do NOT need to bring medication in the original prescription container. Protect your privacy – put them in another container (a plastic bag) or remove the prescription label.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, abuse and accidental poisonings.  Many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

Nearly 2.5 tons of drugs were collected in the previous nine Take-Back events.
