Today is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
National Prescription Drug Take Back Day encourages people to safely get rid of old, expired, or unnecessary medications.
This is achieved by providing drop-off sites in communities all across the country.
This year, a new website called ClearYourCabinet.com, launched by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, makes it easier to find your closest drop-off sites.
Safe disposal keeps drugs from entering our waterways.
Furthermore, ridding the home medicine cabinet can help prevent abuse of opioids.
ClearYourCabinet.com promises to protect your privacy.
