Safe Drug Disposal: National Take Back Initiative

Posted on by Village Green Admin

On Saturday April 30, a number of collection sites around the country will be taking back unused and unwanted prescription drugs (including controlled substances) through the National Take Back Initiative. The program helps to keep these substances out of our environment (e.g., water supply), as well as keep them safe from children, teens and adults who might accidentally or intentionally look to use them inappropriately. This is a great time to go through your medicine cabinet and dispose of your unused and expired drugs! As a reminder, through Village Green's TakeAway Environmental Return System, you can turn in most traditional pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter medications (OTC's) everyday at no cost. (Note: our program does not accept controlled substances.)
