People in eastern and southern Kentucky can safely dispose of unwanted or expired prescription medications on October 26, 2013, as part of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Over the past year, Operation UNITE has helped establish 41 permanent medication drop box sites in 34-counties.

In addition, special take-back sites will be available between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on October 26th at Kentucky State Police Posts and other law enforcement agencies in 12 of UNITE's counties.

People are asked to remove all identifying labels from prescription bottles before bringing them to the drop-off sites.
