Prescription drug take-back day set for Saturday

Area community service agencies are teaming up with law enforcement to take part in another national prescription drug take-back day.

You can drop off old prescription medicines Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Roanoke Civic Center, Tanglewood Mall, the Salem Police Department or the Daleville Kroger.
