BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Have old pills piling up at home? Get rid of them safely Saturday during National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

States across the country including Vermont, New Hampshire and New York are participating. Law enforcement agencies encourage you to bring in your old or unused medicine.

Last April, Americans turned in 450 tons of prescription drugs. That's important because it means fewer drugs sitting around for people to abuse.
