PHOENIX - Is it time to get rid of old prescription drugs lying around your house?
The Drug Enforcement Administration along with state, local, tribal and community partners will hold its fifth Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at various sites across the state this Saturday, September 29.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Arizonans will be able to drop off expired, unused and unwanted pills at locations across the state, free of charge and no questions asked.
According to a news release from the DEA, medicines that remain in home cabinets create a public health and safety concern because they are "susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse."
The DEA reports the majority of abused prescription drugs are "obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet."
You can find a nearby collection site by visiting the DEA website , clicking on the "Got Drugs?" icon and following the links to a database where you'll enter your zip code.
