Get rid of unused prescription drugs


GULF COAST (WALA) – Officials have said prescription drug abuse is second in the nation only to marijuana abuse.  But, you can help fight it by turning in unwanted or unused pills.

Local law enforcement agencies are teaming up with the Drug Enforcement Administration to help rid homes of unwanted or unused prescription drugs.

The 8th National Prescription Drug Take-back Day will be held Saturday, April 26.  Collection sites are open from 10:00 a.m. To 2:00 p.m.

The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.  Only solid medicines may be turned in. No liquids, injectables or needles will be accepted.

Fox10 News has put together a map of where folks can find a drop-off site. Click here for more information.

Fox Ten News Reporter Steve Alexander will have a preview on Fox Ten News at 4 pm.
