The purpose of this National Take Back Day was to provide a venue for persons who wanted to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. This is a great day to safely dispose of expired,unwanted, unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Last year the state of Indiana collected over 2 tons of drugs and safely disposed of them.
