(WXYZ) - National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and local law enforcement around the state and the Drug Enforcement Administration are teaming up to get unwanted prescription drugs off the street.
Cities like Detroit, Novi and Port Huron have numerous drop-off points for residents to dispose of expired and unused medication.
It’s also an effort by the DEA to inform the public about pill abuse and theft.
The service is free and anonymous. In its six previous Take Back events, the DEA and its state and local partners across the nation received over 2.8 million pounds of pills.
