Find the Location Closest to You to Dispose of Unwanted Prescription Drugs

The 9th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Saturday, September 27, 2014
10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Most homes, especially those with chronically ill or disabled individuals, contain unused and/or expired prescription drugs. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs. You can take your expired, unneeded, or unwanted prescription drugs to one of over 5,200 collection sites across the country between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Most people flush their unused prescription drugs down the toilet, throw them in the trash, or keep them in the household medicine cabinet, resulting in contamination of the water supply and the theft and abuse of the prescription drugs. Unused medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused, and abused. Instead of throwing them away or having them clutter the cabinets, you can turn them in on Saturday to one of the locations listed below.

The Southeast Louisiana collection sites will be:
