NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The 17th National Takeback Day is this Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This day gives Tennesseans the ability to remove expired or no longer needed medications from their cabinets and safely dispose of them at a safe site.

The drop off sites will be set up across the state. Simply enter your address here and you can find out the location closest to you.

“We hear so often from people who want to help address Tennessee’s opioid crisis, and this is an impactful and important way that anyone can get involved. By safely, securely, and confidentially disposing of opioids and other prescription medications in your home, you can prevent addiction in your home and in your community,” said TDMHSAS Commissioner Marie Williams, LCSW.
