Prescription medicines pose a danger to people, pets, and the environment if the medications are not disposed of properly. Since 2010, Arkansas Prescription Drug Take Back events have provided a safe way to collect and destroy these medications. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) organizes national Drug Take Back events semi-annually. Hundreds of Arkansas agencies have come together to partner with the DEA hosting Take Back Days in Arkansas to curb prescription drug abuse. In ten years of the program, more than 206 tons have been destroyed in an environmentally safe manner.
