National Take Back Day

NATIONAL TAKE BACK DAY

 

National Take Back Day was established by the Drug Enforcement Agency to collect expired, unwanted and unused prescription and over-the-counter medications and dispose of them properly, thus helping to reduce abuse of the medications and to help protect our environment. The program was started in Lehigh County in 2010. Alburtis Police Department is proud to be a participant of this program.

 

The 9th National Take Back Day was held on September 27, 2014 at various locations throughout the United States. In Lehigh County, area police departments collected the following amounts:
