Prescription Drug take back day this weekend

Dozens of Delaware locations will be collecting prescription drugs Saturday as part of National Take Back Day.
 Last year, more than 300 pounds of drugs were collected at 14 locations.  Nationwide, 121 tons of prescription drugs were collected.  The goal of the program is to remove prescriptions from medicine cabinets to reduce prescription drug abuse and theft.
