CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Saturday is National Drug Take-Back Day. 

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and some of the Lowcountry's law enforcement agencies will be accepting expired or unused prescription drugs in their efforts to keep them  out of our water supply, and also out of the wrong hands.

You can drop off any pills or medication for safe disposal — no questions asked — at various locations between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
