Area residents are being asked to clean out their medicine cabinets, as the Big Spring Police Department, Drug Enforcement Administration and local department store Wal-Mart are teaming up to keep unwanted prescription drugs off the streets.
According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, area residents will have the chance to hand over their unwanted drugs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at the local Wal-Mart, located at 201 W. FM 700.
“The service is free, anonymous and no questions asked,” Everett said. “This gives the community the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.”
