The Oro Valley Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, SOBER Project, Meth Free Alliance, Oro Valley Optimist Club, Golder Ranch Fire District and Pima County Wastewater, once again hosts the Prescription Take Back program, an opportunity for the community to bring in unwanted and expired prescriptions for disposal. Upcoming event dates are:

•    Saturday, Oct. 24

•    Saturday, Nov. 14

•    Saturday, Dec. 19

All events will be held at the Oro Valley Marketplace Walmart location from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Labels are removed from old prescription bottles, and the drugs are recycled by the Pima Animal Care Center for animal medication use.

Organizers also provide information and education for the public to learn about prescription drug safety and proper disposal of narcotics and other harmful drugs.

For more information, call Sgt. Amy Sloane at 229-5080 or Officer Shawn Benjamin at 696-5577.
