Last updated on Thursday, October 24, 2013

(BEDFORD) - The Lawrence County Police Department is sponsoring its 7th annual Prescription Drug Take Back Day Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Security Center on I Street.

All Indiana State Police Posts except the toll road post, and the Washington Fire Department and the Odon Police Department will be accept expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs to be disposed of for destruction.

The service is free and can be anonymous with no questions asked.

The only restriction is new or used needles won't be accepted.

Last year more than 371 tons of prescription drugs were collected at more than 5,800 sites.

Sheriff Sam Craig says prescriptions that languish in the home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse.
