HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — If you have unwanted, unused, or expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, you can safely and properly dispose of them this Saturday at various Hampton Roads locations.
The Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Drug Take-back Day will have sites open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The DEA event allows people to turn in excess prescription drugs that otherwise could be abused or contaminate the environment.
Prescription and over-the-counter “solid dosage” drugs, tablets and capsules, are accepted, but intravenous solutions, injectable medications and needles are not.
