Clean out your medicine cabinet Saturday

On Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding your home of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. 

On Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Louisville-area agencies and the Drug Enforcement Administration are giving you an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding your home of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring your drugs for disposal to any of the sites listed. The service is free and anonymous; no questions asked.

Studies show that the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Last April, Americans turned in 474.5 tons (more than 949,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the April 29 Drug Take Back Day event, go to deatakeback.com.
