Making sure outdated and un-used prescription drugs don't get into the wrong hands is the reason Sioux City police are asking folks to turn them in.
This Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. police and the Drug Enforcement Administration are providing an opportunity to get rid of the stuff you don't want in your medicine cabinet.
Expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, often leading to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse.
It's a free service and no questions will be asked of persons turning in medication.
There are five Sioux City locations for this event. They will be at the downtown Walgreens, 100 Pierce Street, Southern Hills Mall Hy-Vee Store 4500 Sergeant Road, West side Fareway Store 4040 War Eagle Drive and the Floyd Blvd. Wal Mart Store 3101 Floyd Blvd and Hy-Vee 2827 Hamilton Blvd.
