The 5th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Done in conjunction with county criminal investigation divisions and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, the free, no-questions-asked program will accept expired or unwanted prescription medicines.
The aim is to keep those drugs out of landfills, the water supply and the wrong hands.
