Saturday, Oct. 28 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, a chance for people who have accumulated unwanted or unused prescription drugs to safely dispose of those medications at participating agencies.

The goal is to prevent the abuse and misuse of prescription drugs.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., you can drop off old prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, medicated ointments, inhalers, and liquid medication. The drop-off location will be at the carpool parking lot on Casa Street. Free flu shots will also be available at the event.

The Santa Barbara Police Department will also be holding a take-back event from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at the La Cumbre Plaza Mall, located at 121 S. Hope Avenue. No liquids, needles or sharps will be accepted.
