LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — If it’s time to clean out your medicine cabinet and get rid of unused or old medication, you will have a safe place to dispose it on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Studies show the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including medication that is stolen from medicine cabinets. Flushing the medicine, or disposing of it in the trash can pose health/safety hazards.

If possible, keep the pills in the original containers with the name marked out. Needles, aerosols and liquids will not be accepted. (Needles can be taken to Trac-B at 6114 W. Charleston Boulevard)
