RI communities take part in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — On Saturday, many communities across Rhode Island took part National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The biannual event works to raise awareness of the millions of leftover prescription drugs that could wind up in the wrong hands.

Locations across the state had tables set up with drug disposal bins, giving people a safe way to get rid of their unwanted or expired prescription drugs.

While this event happens twice a year, drug disposal bins are available year-round at most local police departments.
