Prescription Drug Take Back This Saturday

National Prescription Take Back Day will be this Saturday from 10am to 2pm at the Worcester Senior Center (128 Providence Street):

Do you have medications at home that you don’t use anymore? Do you want to dispose of them but don’t know how?

Safe disposal of prescription drugs protects children and pets from accidental ingestion as well as prescription drug abuse or misuse.

Bring any medications that you don’t use anymore for safe disposal. This service is free and anonymous – no questions asked. No sharps will be accepted.

This program is made possible by the City of Worcester’s Division of Public Health, the Worcester Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
