You can take your expired or unwanted prescription medications to the Drug Enforcement Administration's National Take Back Initiative, held at local law enforcement facilities. Call your local police department to find out upcoming dates, times, and locations.

You can read more about this event at: http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/index.html

Currently they do not list when the next Take Back event is scheduled for yet, but you can check back regularly at the hyperlink above.

Hope this helps answer your question!
