Unused medication left lying around can be dangerous for you, your kids or even your pets.
That's why Western Lake Superior Sanitary District is holding a free collection event Friday.
They'll be taking any unwanted or expired medications. You can drop them off between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at their Regional Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Duluth.
To prepare for all drop off programs:
-Bring prescription or over-the-counter medication in its original container and place in a sealed, clear plastic bag.
-Cross off or scratch out identifying information if desired. Drop off is anonymous, no ID is required.
-Keep medications out of reach of children while storing and transporting material.
-Needles or other medical sharps are only accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste facility, not drop box sites.
-Separate and package them in rigid containers such as laundry detergent bottles for safe disposal.
