Police agencies across the nation are once again participating in the third National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, which is scheduled to run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The event allows people to rid their homes of expired or unwanted prescription drugs--for free and with no questions asked.

Among those that have advertised drop-off locations are:

Buena Park Police Department, which will accept the drugs in its lobby at 6640 Beach Blvd. and the Buena Park Senior Center at 8150 Knott Ave.

Irvine Police Department, which has a collection site at One Civic Center Plaza. Questions? Contact Sgt. Dennis Maisano at 949.724.7023.

People don't realize that in many cities where people have flushed their old drugs down the toilet or into a landfill, the water is testing high for all sorts of drugs. Not really something anyone wants to drink or especially have their children drink.

You can take them to any pharmacy and they dispose of them properly.

If you don't dispose of them properly they end up in the water supply/ ground water. Do you want anti depressants and hormones in your water?

So are the "real" drugs. Do they have "drop off" locations for those too with no questions asked?
