This Saturday was the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The goal is to provide a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs.

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office and the Traverse City Police Department were at several locations collecting expired or unused medications.

This is all part of the effort to reduce and prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

If you were unable to take back your prescriptions this weekend, don’t worry, go here to find the nearest collection location.
