DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
It is a nationwide effort to properly and safely dispose of unused drugs.
More than 200 locations are set up in Ohio, including several right here in the Miami Valley.
Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine says Ohioans have disposed of more than 8,600 pounds of unwanted prescriptions by using the drop boxes.
"By disposing of these prescription drugs in a safe and secure way, it removes the chance of them potentially getting into the hands of children or those struggling with addiction," said Attorney General DeWine. "I encourage Ohioans who want to get rid of old prescription drugs to use one of the drop boxes or take advantage of the many locations during the DEA's annual Drug Take-Back events."
The prescription drug drop off sites are open from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm Saturday, October 26. To see the complete list of drop off sites in our area, CLICK HERE.
