National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is this weekend, and events are scheduled to collect unwanted medications.
Kentucky has taken more than 163,000 pounds of unwanted prescription medications at drug take-back events and locations during the last nine years, according to the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy.
This week's event is Saturday. To find a nearby collection site, visit takebackday.dea.gov. Kentucky drug disposal locations can be found at the Office of Drug Control Policy's website.
Drug Take-Back Day offers a safe and convenient way to dispose of prescription drugs and education about the potential of abuse of medications, the agency says.
Casey County's Rx Drop Box is located in front of the Liberty Police Department. It is open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. No questions asked. No needles or sharps accepted.
