April 28 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day and to participate, Marana Police Department is working with community partners to hold a Dispose-A-Med event.

The event is from 10 a.m. to noon at the Target near the intersection of Ina and Thornydale.

If not disposed of correctly, unused prescription drugs can be abused or illegally sold.

Prescription drugs that are flushed down the toilet can contaminate water supplies.

Proper disposal of unused prescription drugs protects the environment and can save lives.
