BROWN COUNTY - A national movement to safely dispose of prescription drugs came to the Green Bay area Saturday.
The National Take Back Initiative gives people a chance to anonymously drop off any unwanted medications.
People could take the drugs to various collection sites, like Ashwaubenon Public Safety.
Officers say the drop off helps prevent prescription drug abuse.
"We keep them out of the hands of someone it's not intended for. With that out of your medicine cabinet the temptation of taking it, and experimenting with it, is much less," said Tom Rolling with Ashwaubenon Public Safety.
The last collection was in April.
At that time, Americans turned in more than 740 thousand pounds of drugs.
Brown County authorities collected more than 15 hundred pounds.
