Winnipeg Police CrestSaturday, May 11 is National Prescription Drop Off Day, the best day of the year to get rid of that bottle of penicillin growing mould in your medicine cabinet.

Winnpeg Police will be accepting old, expired or unwanted prescription drugs all day Saturday. The purpose behind the day is to prevent the drugs from being abused on the street, or prevent people from flushing or throwing away the unwanted drugs, as they can cause an environmental hazard.

The drop-off day is free and anonymous and runs 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., said police.

Locations include:

Public Safety Building Service Centre – 151 Princess Street
District 2 Service Centre – 210 Lyle Street
District 3 Service Centre – 260 Hartford Avenue
East District Service Centre – 1750 Dugald Road
East District Service Centre – 1400 Henderson Highway
