TERRE HAUTE Ind, (WTHI) - Community groups partnered with police and the U.S Drug Enforcement Taskforce for National Drug Take-Back events across the county.
There were a couple drop-off locations in Terre Haute.
Pharmacists said this is one of the simplest and most effective ways to prevent drug abuse.
Last spring, the DEA collected a record setting 937 pounds of dangerous and unwanted prescription drugs.
Many communities have drop-off boxes available year-round.
You can reach out to your local police to find a drop-box near you.
