It’s time again to gather up any old prescriptions lying around the house and turn them in for proper disposal. Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Expired and unwanted prescriptions can be brought to sites throughout the county to prevent drug abuse and theft. It’s also an effort to prevent hazards from the improper disposal of these drugs, such as in the trash or flushing down a toilet. The service is free and there are no questions asked.

There are several sites throughout Arlington collecting the drugs from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., in addition to those announced by the Arlington County Police Department last week. Here is the full list:

  • Arlington Fire Station #1, 500 S. Glebe Road
  • Arlington Fire Station #8, 4845 Lee Highway
  • Arlington Fire Station #9, 1900 S. Walter Reed Drive
  • Pentagon parking lot, 551 Army Navy Drive
  • Ft. Myer Post Exchange, 104 McNair Road

The following site will be operating on Friday, from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. It will not hold hours on Saturday:

  • Arlington Hall Station Building 1, 111 S. George Mason Drive
