To help prevent the misuse of prescription drugs and address the safety and health hazards of pharmaceutical waste, Mercy Medical Center is partnering with the Stark County Sheriff Department, Canton City Police Department and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to serve as a collection site for a one-day Prescription Drug “Take-Back” Initiative on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Individuals may drop off unwanted or expired over-the-counter and pharmaceutical pills, liquids and creams–no questions asked–between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Mercy Medical Center (follow signs on campus to the location). Please remove all identification labels. All medicine bottles will be recycled, and all drugs will be properly incinerated. This program is anonymous, and no identification is needed.
