BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) -

The Blue Ash Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency are teaming up to prevent prescription drug abuse.

A community-wide prescription drug disposal is planned for April 27 at the Blue Ash Municipal Building, located at 4343 Cooper Road. The public will have an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of expired, unused and unwanted prescription medication.

The drug disposal is part of National Take-Back Day, an initiative happening across the country.

The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the municipal building parking lot.

Organizers say the free service is completely anonymous, and personal information should be removed from all materials prior to arrival.
