Time for some spring cleaning and not just your house or garage, but your medicine cabinet as well.

According to KWQC.com, area police departments are offering free drug take-back events on Saturday, April 29th. This is a free, anonymous way to dispose of expired medication and keep them off the streets and out of the environment. Check out the entire story and locations for drop off here.

I also know that UnityPoint in Muscatine is holding a Health Fair today from 11am-4pm at the Muscatine Mall and they will also have a drop off location for unwanted medication as well.

If you can't make it to any of the events, you can check here for drop off locations.

Some say drugs should be thrown in the trash, mixed with kitty litter or coffee grounds.  But “experts” who only talk about trash disposal of medicines are not telling the full story.  There’s a safer way. The FDA, DEA, EPA, Office of Drug Control Policy and numberous agencies recommend using medicine take-back programs as the best way to dispose of your unwanted medicines.
