ASHEVILLE, N.C. -

Asheville Police need your help to make sure unwanted prescriptions don't fall into the wrong hands.

The department is planning to host Operation Medicine Drop on March 29. The event encourages the public to bring in unused and unwanted medication that can then be safely disposed. The goal is to prevent accidental poisonings and drug abuse while also protecting our water source.

Operation Medicine Drop is a partnership between Asheville Police, Safe Kids North Carolina, the Riverkeepers of North Carolina, Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of North Carolina and local law enforcement agencies.

If you have prescriptions you'd like to drop off, stop by the Asheville Police Department at 100 Court Plaza between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday.
