(Las Vegas, NV) — Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto along with the Drug Enforcement Administration will hold a prescription drug roundup this Saturday, September 28th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back day is an excellent opportunity for people to properly dispose of unused or out of date prescriptions,” said Masto. “Helping the

community have proper avenues to dispose of their prescription drugs helps curb substance misuse and abuse. I would urge Nevadans to be mindful about leaving

medications in easily accessible areas as it can fall into the wrong hands.”

In addition, people are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose

potential safety and health hazards.
