If you have unwanted or expired prescription drugs around your house, you can safely dispose of them at various locations on Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so they don't wind up in the wrong hands.

National Take-Back Day is billed by the government as a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of your medication and to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

The government said the October 2019 Take Back Day brought in 882,919 pounds of unused or expired prescription medication.
