October 27, 2017 – The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, to be held on Saturday, October 28th, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

This is a great opportunity for those who missed previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to dispose of those medications easily and safely.

The Collection Sites in Nevada County are:
