SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Springfield Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration will be taking part in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 24th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It will mark the 20th opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft.

This includes the Springfield Justice Center, the Lane County Sheriff's Office, Coburg City Hall, Halsey City Hall or Harrisburg City Hall.

You can drop off any expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs with no questions asked.

Liquids, needles or sharps cannot be accepted by the DEA -- only pills or patches.

Last fall, Americans turned in 492.7 tons (over 985,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at over 4,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,000 of its state and local law enforcement partners.
