POCONOS - Saturday, April 27, is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

“Currently, we are seeing the massive and deadly impacts the opioid epidemic is causing across the United States,” said Rep. Rosemary Brown (Pike/Monroe). “To help combat this epidemic and curb this life-threatening behavior, prescription drug drop-off locations were created to provide a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs and keep them out of the hands of our youth and other addicts.”

You can visit the following drop-off locations in Wayne, Pike and Monroe counties to not only participate in this important initiative on April 27, but at any time that is convenient to you:
