Join Rimrock for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day 2021!

Rimrock is proud to be partnering with local law enforcement, and the DEA for this year’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Saturday, October 23rd. This year, there will be three locations in Billings for people to dispose of their unwanted and expired prescription medications — The Billings Elks Lodge, 934 Lewis Avenue, in Billings Heights at First Interstate Bank, 730 Main Street, and at the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office at 2323 2nd Ave N. Staff from Rimrock will be at the Heights location assisting with the event.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. Too often, these unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to potential accidental poisoning, misuse, and overdose. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.7 million Americans misused controlled prescription pain relievers. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. This April, 839,543 lbs. (420 Tons) of unwanted prescription drugs were brought to 5,060 collection sites across the U.S. In Montana, 1,380 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs were collected at 20 sites. Since National Drug Take Back Day launched, Montanans have turned in 45,875 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs.

Join us on Saturday, October 23rd, any time between 10:00am and 2:00pm at the First Interstate Bank in the Heights at 730 Main Street to safely and anonymously dispose of your unused or expired prescription medications.

“First Interstate champions healthy communities and supports efforts to provide a safe, regulated place to dispose of outdated and unused prescription drugs,” said Brian Brown, First Interstate’s Billings Market President. “We applaud Rimrock’s efforts in recognizing the need to preemptively collect these materials, significantly minimizing the odds that they fall into the wrong hands.”

Unwanted prescriptions can also be disposed of throughout the year at 50 permanent drop box locations across the state.
