partners with the DEA for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Program
| ALBANY - On Saturday,
September 29, the Drug Enforcement Agency has scheduled another National
Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.
The New York State Police, communities and law enforcement agencies are partnering with the DEA to provide drop-off points across New York State.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is an opportunity for people to get rid of unwanted and unused prescription drugs in a safe way.
According to the DEA, after four previous Take-Back days, people across the U.S. turned in more than 774 tons of medication.

If you can’t participate in the take-back program, the State Department of Environmental Conservation reminds you not to flush unused drugs if possible.
