MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Alabamians are encouraged to participate in National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Saturday.

More than 100 collections sites will be available across the state from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the eighth annual event.

Law enforcement officers will be available at the sites to receive prescription drugs for safe disposal.

Last year, more than 60 agencies collected nearly 6,000 pounds of unwanted, expired or used drugs, according to Attorney General Luther Strange.

To find a collection site, visit the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency website.
