National Drug Take Back Initiative

2014 National Drug Take-Back Initiative Webster Groves Recreation Center will serve as a drug take-back site on Saturday, April 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Other take-back sites are located throughout the St. Louis area. Gather your expired or unwanted medicines (prescription and over the counter), remove or mark out any personal information (a permanent marker works well) and drop them off at a collection site. If you put the drugs in a paper bag for drop-off, you can recycle the prescription bottles.

Proper disposal of unwanted drugs is important to keep our water and soil from being contaminated and to prevent the medications from getting into the hands of those who might abuse them or take them accidentally.
