The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced that it will continue its medication take-back program for the calendar year 2011. The Medication Take-Back Pilot Project now offers 11 locations for the disposal of unwanted medications. The boxes are intended for household medications, including prescription pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter products. In addition, this program is prohibited from accepting narcotics, controlled substances, or medications from clinics, hospitals or nursing homes.
