GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – In 2010, the US Drug Enforcement Agency created National Prescription Drug Take Back Day as a way to encourage people to safely and properly dispose of unwanted medications. Since then, over 12 million pounds of medications and medical supplies have been collected and disposed of on Drug Take Back Days.
Here to talk about it is Natalia Szczygiel – director of operations at Spectrum Health.
