This Saturday is National Drug Take Back Day. Law enforcement across the nation will have sites for people to drop off any medications they are no longer using. Police Departments in Waukee, Perry, and West Des Moines are all participating from 10am-2pm.
Leaving old medications in your house increases the chance that you could accidentally take the wrong medication or that someone could find the medication and use it for non-medical purposes. Find out more information below.
