The city of Boulder and the University of Colorado will offer prescription drug drop-off stations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday as part of a National Take-Back initiative, lead by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

The free and anonymous stations will be located in a parking lot near the corner of Regent Drive and Colorado Avenue on the CU campus and in the Elevations Credit Union parking lot at 2960 Diagonal Highway in Boulder.

There will also be a drop-off at the southeast corner of the Walmart at 745 N. Highway 287 in Lafayette.

The nationwide initiative is an attempt to reduce prescription drug abuse by providing drop-off locations across the country to encourage removing excess and expired medications from homes. Last year, the initiative collected more than 377,000 pounds of prescriptions.
