The event, which encourages people to dispose of expired prescription medication, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

CSPD said, “the DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day reflects their commitment to American’s safety and health by encouraging the public to remove unneeded medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction from ever starting.”
