The Abbotsford Police Department invites the public to drop off their unwanted, unused and expired prescription drugs on Saturday, May 10.

The event is being held in partnership with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Drug Abuse Committee as part of National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day.

Unwanted medication can be disposed of at local pharmacies or at the Abbotsford Police Department's front counter between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day is also supported by the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police, Partnership for a Drug Free Canada, Health Canada and Public Safety Canada.

Residents are further reminded that they can return any unwanted or outdated prescription medications to their local pharmacy for safe and secure disposal at any time throughout the year.
