DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION 18TH NATIONAL
Upcoming National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 26, 2019 between 10:00AM-2:00PM

The Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA) has scheduled its 18th National Take-Back
Initiative (NTBI), which will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019, from
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The DEA’s Philadelphia Field Division will
oversee the NTBI efforts for the states of Delaware and Pennsylvania. This
is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have
subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused, and expired prescription drugs,
to safely dispose of those medications.
The NTBI aims to
provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also
educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these
E-Cigarette & Vaping Devices Disposal Information
To help combat the continued vaping health crisis across the country, DEA will be collecting vaping pens and cartridges at NTBI collection sites. Through discussions with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), DEA has determined that vaping pens without the internal batteries are considered household hazardous waste, the exact same waste designation as the NTBI collected pharmaceuticals and can therefore be co-mingled with NTBI materials. Pens with batteries in them, however, are a different waste stream designation and, more importantly, are considered a potential fire hazard. For those that have batteries that cannot be removed, please inform the consumer to call their local hazardous waste management facility or they can check with large electronic chain stores who may accept the devices for proper disposal.
