Event provides safe place for locals to dispose old medications

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jul 27, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An event was held on Saturday, with the hopes of keeping prescription pills out of the hands of children.

The Clark County School District Police Department teamed up with the Care Coalition for "Pill Take Back Day."

The event, held at Sierra Vista High School, allowed people across the valley to turn in unused prescription pills so they can be disposed in a safe manner.

At the last pill collection event in June, CCSD police collected more than 135 pounds of medications.
