It's your chance to responsibly dispose of prescription drugs that you don't need anymore, as opposed to flushing your old meds down the toilet or throwing them in the trash.

Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon says the event "aims to provide a safe, secure and environmentally responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and trafficking of medications."

The event held for Acadia Parish will happen Saturday from 10 am till 2 pm in the parking lot at Walgreen's in Rayne.
