National Prescription Drug Take Back Dayhappens twice a year and you have the chance to safely dispose unused medication on Oct. 23.

Lynne Doyle, the Executive Director of Ottawa County Community Mental Health, talked to us about their collaboration with theOttawa County Sheriff's Office and Spectrum Healthfor this weekend's event in Ottawa County.

Doyle told us the drug take back day includes non prescription drugs (like Tylenol) you are not using. She said they'll be taking back things like syringes that have not been used as well.

Holland Hospital and Spectrum Health's Zeeland Hospital location are participating. Call either hospital if you would like more information.
