The Sacramento Police Department is participating in National Prescription Take Back Day on Saturday, Oct. 28th.
Anyone looking to dispose of unused or expired prescription medication can bring the drugs to the police department at 5770 Freeport Blvd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The idea is to provide a safe, convenient and responsible way of disposing of prescription drugs while educating the public about the potential for abuse.
Visit the Drug Enforcement Administration's Office of Diversion to find other collection sites near you.
