Saturday Is Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

It’s that time of year again: National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day takes place this weekend.

Gather up your unused drugs and on Saturday, April 28, 2018, bring them to the Orange CVS, 279 Boston Post Road, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

If you have any prescription or even over-the-counter medications around that you don’t need anymore, simply bring them to the CVS store parking lot and authorized helpers will direct you to drop them into the large boxes they have set up.

Orange Police officers, working in conjunction with the DEA will take them off of your hands, no questions asked. You’ll leave knowing that your old medications will be properly disposed of, and won’t fall into the hands of anyone who shouldn’t have them.

These helpers will not rummage through the boxes to look at or remove anything that has been deposited.

At the end of the collection period, a DEA officer will take the collection containers to a site where all of the materials will be incinerated.
