If your faucet drips or your toilet runs it can waste over 10,000 gallons a year -- the amount of water in a typical backyard swimming pool. More than one trillion gallons of water are lost annually in the U.S. due to easy-to-fix household leaks.

Spring 2018: Exact Date TBA

At a drop-off location near you

Help support a safe, convenient and responsible way disposing of prescription drugs by participating in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day!

Bring any unused or expired prescription drugs to a drop-off location near you.

The Spring Drug Take Back Day has not been scheduled yet, but permanent drop off sites can be found here. 

Turning in unwanted prescription drugs at these drop-off locations helps us keep our waterways safe from flushed or dumped pharmaceuticals that wastewater treatment plants are unable screen out. Help prevent these drugs from reaching our streets and waterways!
