Local law enforcement agencies will be collecting unused and expired prescription drugs on Saturday.

"The purpose of the Drug Take Back Program is for citizens of Laramie County to safely dispose of any type of prescription drugs or any other non-narcotic drugs that they have," said Laramie County Sheriff's Department Captain Linda Gesell. "That way they don't throw them in their garbage for other people to take, flush them down the toilet or put them down the disposal."

The Sheriff's Department will be at Town and Country Pharmacy on the South Greeley Highway, Laramie County Fire District #2 on North College and the Pine Bluffs Town Hall from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

"No illegal drugs, sharps, thermometers, no oxygen containers, no radioactive materials, nothing in a pressurized canister or any type of chemotherapy drugs will be accepted," said Gesell.

Gesell says the department has collected over 1,200 pounds of drugs since starting the program five years ago.
