It never fails; over the years, unused or expired prescription drugs stack up in our medicine cabinet.

To help combat this issue, National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is scheduled for October 28 in Great Falls. 

Drop Off Location Below 👇

This event has a dual mission: providing a safe and convenient method for the proper disposal of prescription drugs and raising awareness about the potential for medication abuse.

Organized by the Alliance for Youth, this initiative aims to safeguard the community while fostering responsibility.

Great Falls residents are encouraged to contribute to this event's success by bringing unused or expired medications to designated drop-off locations.

It's worth noting that these disposal boxes are accessible throughout the year, thanks to the ongoing efforts of the Alliance for Youth.
