Get rid of unused/expired drugs this Saturday

The time has come once again.

Protect your loved ones by participating in Utah Take Back Day this Saturday, October 27th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Utah Take Back, a bi-annual event in April and October, is a day set aside to help this great state properly dispose of unused, expired, or unwanted prescriptions. Last April our local law enforcement partners collected 17,364 pounds of prescriptions drugs!

Utah Take Back Day is free of charge and anonymous. Collection sites are set-up throughout the entire state and this Saturday includes a site at the Capitol.

Find the site nearest to you here. The following items are returnable:

  • Prescription medicines
  • Over the counter medicines
  • Vitamins, pet medicines
  • Medicated ointments and lotions
  • Inhalers
  • Liquid medicines in glass or leak-proof containers (up to 12 ounces)
  • Medicine samples

The Take Back service is provided through the partnership of the Attorney General’s Office, DEA, Department of Health, Department of Public SafetyUtah National Guard, and more.   

Please share this with your friends!  Your first step in solving Utah’s opioid crisis is to make sure you don’t become an accidental dealer.
