Prescription drug take-back event Saturday at Springfield Central High School

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Do you have any prescription drugs in your home that you would like to get rid of? The Springfield Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency are offering you an opportunity to do just that.

A drug take-back event will be held Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. at Central High School.

You can freely and anonymously drop-off any unwanted prescription pills or patches. They cannot accept liquids, and cannot take needles, or other sharps, however.
