The El Dorado Police Department will be taking part in the National Drug Takeback Day on Saturday.
A patrol car will be in the Walmart parking lot with a tent and table from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is no charge to drop off unused medications.
This is important because a lot of drugs have hormones that can get into the water that shouldn’t be there.
An El Dorado Police representative said a lot of people begin getting involved with drugs through legal drugs in the cabinet. People also have broken into homes to steal medications.
This is the third year the police department has participated in this program.
