Doña Ana County residents with unused, expired or unwanted prescription medications are encouraged to participate in the annual drug take-back program on Saturday, Sept. 26, sponsored in part by the Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration and other local law-enforcement agencies.
The program gives the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous drugs. The service is free and anonymous. All drugs surrendered are destroyed.
Several locations around Doña Ana County will host take-back sites, and will be accepting medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
