Get rid of those old and unused prescriptions.

The Sarnia Police Service is participating in a province-wide initiative encouraging residents to properly dispose of expired and unused medication.

Constable Les Jones says residents can drop off their prescriptions at Sarnia police headquarters today from 10am-2pm.

Residents can also drop off their prescriptions between 10am-2pm at Lambton OPP Headquarters in Petrolia on Oil Heritage Rd.

Close to $6,000 worth of prescription drugs were turned over to Sarnia police last year.
