DEA collecting old prescription pills Saturday

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Prescription drug abuse is on the rise, but the DEA is working with sites across the nation to collect your old pills.  This Saturday, Sept. 25th, the Drug Enforcement Administration will be holding a collection day as part of it's "Take Back" campaign.

More than three-thousand sites nationwide will be collecting expired, unused and unwanted drugs for destruction.

Officials hope the more we do to dispose of old pills, the less we'll have to worry about prescription drug abuse.

You can find a site near you - just go to the DEA's website.
