Old and unused medicines in your home can pose a risk for accidental poisoning, theft and drug abuse, according to officials. Flushing medicine down the toilet or disposal in the trash can also cause environmental problems.
You are being asked to get rid of those medications responsibly on Saturday for National Prescription Take Back Day.
You can drop off expired or unwanted prescriptions and drugs, no questioned asked.
There will be several drop-off sites set up across the metro from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
