TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department is hosting a Dispose-A-Med event on Saturday morning for people with expired or unneeded medications.

Prescription and over-the-counter tablets, capsules, liquids and creams will be collected from 8 a.m. to noon at 7575 E. Speedway Blvd.

Metal or glass inhalation aerosol bottles, syringes and epi-pens will not be accepted. Drugs from commercial organizations will not be accepted.

The service is free and anonymous.

This goal of the event is to keep unwanted medications out of our waterways and out of the hands of kids who might try to abuse them. It's also important to dispose of your old meds to keep them away from children, the elderly and pets.
