FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Law enforcement agencies are teaming up to properly dispose of unused medication.
The Indiana State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration held their fifth Drug Take Back Day at the ISP's Fort Wayne post.
Drug Take Back Day is a free and anonymous way to get rid of expired, unused and unwanted prescription medicine.
"We don't want people flushing them down the toilet," DEA group supervisor Steve Ribolla said. "We also don't want people leaving them around their house where children can get a hold of them."
Last April, Drug Take Back Day took in 276 tons of prescription drugs.
Ribolla says there is a 24-hour drop-off box inside the door of the ISP post on Ellison Road that people can take unwanted medication at any time.
