If you have some old prescription medications you need to get rid of, here's another chance.

Saturday is National Drug Take Back Day.  Many local law enforcement agencies will be collecting old medications to keep them off the streets.  All dropoffs are anonymous.

The Superior, Ashland, Hayward, Babbitt and Floodwood police departments and St. Louis County Sheriff's Offices in Hibbing, birginia, and Aurora are among the dropoff locations.  The hours will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at all sites.
