This is just a reminder that this Saturday, April 30th is Drug Take Back Day. Remember to remove any personal identifying information (such as labels) before you turn them in to your local drop off location. Want to go the extra green mile this year? Then also take a moment to gather up any old batteries you might have laying around, so that you can properly recycle them too. Earthday might be over, but that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook until next year.
This time of year, most people are starting to plan for all those fun Fall and Halloween things they look forward to all year. While seeking out the perfect costume, and enjoying that fifth pumpkin spiced latte of the week, don’t forget to prep for some of the serious stuff too. Yeah, I know that making an appointment to get your flu shot isn’t nearly as much fun as planning that pumpkin patch visit, but it still needs to be done. Similarly, cleaning out your medicine cabinet, and making sure the contents get disposed of properly is just another part of adulting these days.
This Fall’s National Drug Take Back Day will take place on Saturday, October 23rd. The official website (takebackday.dea.gov) will soon have all the info you’ll need to find a drop-off location near you. Just remember to remove all labels while sorting out the bottles that need to go. Helping to keep dangerous prescriptions out of the hands of kids, and keeping our waterways clean and drug free, is all of our responsibility.
#HappyFall everyone. 🍂🍂🍂🍂
