Instead of dumping medications – prescription or over-the-counter – down the sink or flushing them, which puts them into the water supply – National Take Back Day allows you to give them to law enforcement officials who safely destroy them.

When we dispose of old prescriptions or even over-the-counter medications by flushing them in the toilet or tossing them in the garbage, we are contributing to dangerous consequences.
