Bozeman to Participate in National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
Attorney General Tim Fox invites all Montanans to dispose of their unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs during National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“National statistics show 53 percent of prescription painkiller abusers get their drugs from a friend or family member for free,” said Attorney General Tim Fox. “We need to resolve to never share our prescription drugs with others. One easy way to do that is to properly dispose of your prescription medication as soon as you are done taking it so it’s not available to anyone else. National Take-Back Day is a great opportunity for Montanans to safely, responsibly, and conveniently get rid of any prescription drugs that may be overstaying their welcome in the medicine cabinet.”
The National Take-Back Day events offer free, anonymous, no-questions-asked prescription pill and patch disposal at any of the more than 20 participating sites across the state. However, the following items cannot be accepted: illegal drugs, chemotherapy drugs, needles, sharps, oxygen containers, pressurized canisters, and radioactive substances.
