Red Rock Behavioral Health Services is encouraging residents to clean out their medicine cabinets on Oct. 26. 

National Take Back Day is a nation-wide initiative to safely dispose of expired or unneeded prescription medication. 

Earlier this year, a National Take Back Day was held in April. In the nation, 937,443 pounds of prescription medication was collected, 20,152 pounds of medication from Oklahoma, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. 

In Tuttle and Chickasha, there are several MedSafe Receptacles at pharmacies and law enforcement agencies. These are available year-round. The receptacles are made of stainless steel, bolted to the floor and locked. 

The MedSafe Receptacles were purchased by Red Rock Behavioral Health Services, through the Partnership for Success grant. 

The receptacles are not intended for the following items: aerosol spray cans, alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, no illegal drugs, needles and syringes or sharp containers and medical devices, more than four ounces of liquid, trash and mercury thermometers, batteries and chemicals.
