Rx Drug Take Back Day yields 4K pounds of prescrption meds

Delaware's latest Prescription Take Back Day yields more than four-thousand pounds of unused or expired medications.

The amount collected last weekend was the second largest in state history.

Delawareans had the chance to drop off their prescription drugs at thirty collection sites up and down the state to help keep them out of wrong hands or from ending up in the water supply.

Since the first Prescription Drug Take Back Day, the state has collected more than 20,000 pounds of prescription drugs.
