Montana Attorney General Tim Fox is asking Montanans to find their unneeded or outdated prescription drugs and get rid of them in a safe way.

“On Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at locations all across Montana, there will be participation in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day,” said Montana Department of Justice spokeswoman Anastasia Burton. “Medications that sit too long in your medicine cabinet could potentially be stolen or abused. So, the attorney general would like to encourage folks to please take some time to go through their medicine cabinets. Look through medications that are outdated or unwanted and bring them in to the take back location near you and they will be safely disposed of.”

The Missoula location will for the take back will be at Southgate Mall. Other locations can be found in the following cities: Anaconda, Big Timber, Bozeman, Butte, Colstrip, Conrad, Gardiner, Glendive, Great Falls, Harlowton, Helena, Lame Deer, Lincoln, Malmstrom Air Force Base, Miles City, Seeley Lake, Stevensville, and West Yellowstone.

All of the drugs turned in will be disposed of by the DEA. Last April, over 371 tons of prescription drugs were turned in nation wide.
