ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– Authorities across the state came together for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
Saturday, anyone could drop off their medications at designated sites throughout New Mexico.
These are photos from the take back event at the Walgreens near Wyoming and Montgomery.
The drugs are then turned over to the Drug Enforcement Agency for proper disposal.
Authorities say the take back program keeps drugs out of the hands of children and prevents the drugs from ending up in landfills.
