Get your unwanted prescription medications ready as the next Safe Medication Disposal Day for Tompkins County is scheduled for Saturday.

The collection event will be held at the Slaterville Fire Station in Slaterville Springs from 10am to 2pm.

Chair of the Coalition for Safe Medication Disposal Ed Gottlieb says safely disposing medications can prevent contamination in the environment and possible overdoses from leaving prescription meds around.

You can dispose of prescription medications, over the counter drugs, and pet medicines.
