Saturday, April 28, at 10 a.m, at the Montana Department of Justice, people will be able to give rid of their old drugs. The move is to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding homes of unused prescription drugs.

Just bring your unwanted prescription pills and patches for free, anonymous, no-questions-asked disposal at one of the twenty collection sites across the state.

“Nearly 30,000 pounds of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications have been collected at Montana National Take Back Day events since 2010,” Attorney General Tim Fox said. “I encourage all Montanans to proactively dispose of their unused and expired prescription drugs at a Take Back Day location this Saturday or at a permanent take back box near them.”

 

Montanans who cannot make it to the Take Back Day event can dispose of their unwanted medications by visiting one of over 50 permanent drug drop box locations across the state. The complete list of permanent drug drop box locations in Montana is available at www.resolvemontana.org.
