Kansans can rid their homes of expired or unused prescription drugs on Saturday by dropping them off at sites throughout the state.

Medications will be accepted for safe disposal as part of the
semi-annual National Drug Take Back Day.

The event is coordinated by the Drug Enforcement Administration
along with local and state agencies.
