The DEA National Drug Take Back Day began in 2010 as a "safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs", according to the agency's website. This service is free and anonymous, as no questions will be asked. Removing these drugs from home will also decrease the likelihood residents will become dependent upon them or use them outside of a doctor's recommended guidelines.

Last year, Americans turned in 456 tons of prescription drugs at sites operated by the DEA and its state and local law enforcement partners, the news release said.
