r The Utah County Department of Drug and Alcohol Prevention and Treatment is holding a prescription drug take-back event on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at three South Utah County locations.

Residents are encouraged to bring their left-over prescription drugs to be disposed of properly. While flushing drugs down the toilet was a common practice up until recently, new studies have shown it has a negative environmental impact. Giving your left-over drugs to someone else to use is also a dangerous practice.

This event, and others like it, provides a safe way to bring awareness to, and dispose properly of prescription medications. Friends and family members supply two-thirds of all the opioids misused and abused by Utahns. It is important to safely dispose of your unused or expired prescription.

Utah County also has several free disposal locations available outside of take-back events. Find one near you at useonlyasdirected.org.
