Authorities will collect unwanted and expired prescription drugs Saturday from residents looking to get rid of their supplies.
The Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, Glendale Police Department and CV Alliance, a local nonprofit drug and alcohol prevention organization, will oversee four drop-off sites from 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The no-questions-asked collection is part of a nationwide one-day event aimed at preventing pill abuse and potential drug-related thefts.
More than 950 pounds of prescription and nonprescription drugs were collected in Montrose, La Crescenta and La Cañada Flintridge last year during a similar event.
Authorities amassed 324 tons of prescription drugs last October at thousands of drop-off sites nationally.
To drop off unwanted drugs, visit the following locations.
- CVS Pharmacy at 2037 Verdugo Blvd. in Montrose
- Rite-Aid Pharmacy at 2647 W. Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta
- Rite-Aid Pharmacy at 647 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada Flintridge
- Glendale Community College-Glendale at 1500 N. Verdugo Road in Glendale
