National Pill Take Back Day: WNY Locations

The 12th annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day allows people to drop off their unused or unwanted prescription medications at one of 4,700 collection sites around the country, according to the Office of U.S. Attorney William HochulJr The drop-off is free with no-questions asked. They are set up from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday.
