Saturday, Apr. 27, is National Drug Take Back Day and locations all throughout Lower Bucks County will be accepting old and unwanted prescription medications. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., people can bring pills and bottles for anonymous disposal, and chances are there’s a location nearby for local residents.

The Bucks County Drug & Alcohol Commission says more than 50% of people who abuse pain relievers get them from family and friends. A grant from the BCDAC makes this project possible, and more information is available here

Products Accepted: Prescription and over-the-counter solid medications, i.e. tablets and
capsules; Liquid medications, inhalers, creams, ointments, nasal sprays; Pet medications

Products NOT Accepted: Injectables and needles, Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine
