Have unused prescription meds? Saturday's the day to turn them in — no questions asked.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is teaming up with law enforcement agencies across the nation to hold another pill drop-off day Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The event has collected 1,700 tons of expired or unwanted prescription medications over the past 3 1/2 years, the DEA says.
Only pills and other solids like patches can be dropped off — no liquids or needles.
Drop-off locations in the Tampa Bay area include:
• Hillsborough: Museum of Science and Industry, 4801 E Fowler Ave., Tampa; Winn Dixie, 2535 State Road 60, Valrico; CVS, 403 Alexander St., Plant City.
• Pinellas: Northeast parking lot, Westfield Countryside, 27001 N U.S. 19, Clearwater.
