Prescription drug drop-off day this weekend

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

If you have prescriptions you want to get rid of, you can safely dispose of them this weekend.

A National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is set for Saturday. Local law enforcement partners will collect unwanted or unused prescriptions and educate people about drug abuse.

Previous events have taken two million pounds of medications off people's hands.

That's happening Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. To locate a collection site near you, visit: http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/

Check back often; sites are added daily. Please contact the Call Center at 1-800-882-9539 if you require assistance.
