Indiana residents will be able to dispose of unused prescription drugs at state police posts throughout the state on Saturday.

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration is sponsoring the sixth nationwide "Prescription Drug Take Back" initiative. The initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft.

Anybody with unwanted, expired or unused prescription drugs can drop them off for free at any post except for the Toll Road post. Only pills and liquid medications will be accepted, new or used needles will not.

The medications will be accepted at the state police posts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
