In an effort to help keep homes safer and prevent pill abuse, the Gilbert Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration are hosting a disposal event for people needing to rid their medicine cabinets and homes of old and unwanted prescription medication on Saturday.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gilbert Police Department, 75 E. Civic Center Drive, and the service is free and anonymous.

In April alone, Americans turned in 188 tons of unwanted prescription drugs at 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement agencies, according to Gilbert police.
