National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Gather up your unwanted drugs. Let's get them out of the wrong hands and out of the environment!
April 27 is the 6th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at 18 drug drop-off locations in Hampshire and Franklin counties. A total of 9,580 pounds, just short of five tons, have been collected in the Northwestern District of Hampshire and Franklin Counties and the town of Athol over five previous Take Back events. Nationally, over 2 million pounds -- or more than 1,000 tons -- have been collected, so far.
