Here’s where the DEA says you can drop off prescription drugs this Saturday

Getting rid of unused prescription drugs from your medicine cabinets could potentially save a life.

That’s why the Drug Enforcement Administration will host its 21st National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The one-day event offers more than 200 collection sites throughout the state of Florida where people can dispose anonymously disposal of unneeded medications for free.

To find a location near you, visit www.deatakeback.com or call 800-882-9539.

Since the start of Take Back Day has removed more than 7,000 tons of medication from circulation.
