ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) —  The 24th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is set for Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This national day is hosted by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and provides residents with a way to safely dispose of their unused medication.

The DEA said this is a way to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. In 2022, the DEA and its partners collected about 684 tons of unwanted and unused drugs during the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day events.
