Columbia, SC (WLTX) - There's an upcoming safe way to get rid of old or unwanted prescriptions that might be lying around the house.

Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, and a number of agencies have spots set up to take back prescriptions no questions asked. 

Most local law enforcement agencies have spots set up where you can drop off prescriptions that have past their expiration date or extras you may have around and they will be taken off your hands.

"Get those drugs out of your medicine cabinet. because statistics show a lot of young people are misusing prescription drugs and it's important to get rid of that so you don't have that unwanted risk of someone in your household using unprescribed drugs," says Ashley Wierzbicki of LRADAC.

If you want to know where to drop off prescriptions in your area , call your local law enforcement office.
