Over 5.5 million pounds (that’s 2,762 tons of unused or expired prescription drugs) has been destroyed in the past 5 years. The DEA is continuing collection of unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs. The DEA asks the public to bring their potentially dangerous, unwanted medicines to one of over 5,000 collection sites around the country that are manned by more than 3,800 of DEA’s local law enforcement partners. This service is free of charge, and no questions asked.

America is experiencing an epidemic of overdoses from abuse of prescription drugs. DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg.  “Please remove unwanted prescription drugs from your homes and help prevent substance abuse fueled by our medicine cabinets.”  

According to the DEA, drug overdoses are now the leading cause of injury-related death in the United States, eclipsing deaths from motor vehicle crashes or firearms.  The removal from homes of unwanted prescription pills that can be abused, stolen or resold is an easy way to help fight the epidemic of substance abuse and addiction.
