LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

 Saturday the City of Lufkin took part in National Medication Disposal Day, giving residents a chance to properly dispose of unused or expired medications. The goal of disposal day is to keep these medications of the streets and away from the natural environment. Angelina Beautiful/Clean along with Abeldt's Pharmacy, The Coalition and the Lufkin Police Department partnered together to produce the only collection site in a 125 mile radius

"You might have expired medications, unused medications from a family member that passes and you're just unsure of what to do with these unused medications and we've done it once every year for the past couple of years and its been the most effective way to properly dispose of these types of medications," said Amanda Anderson, Executive Director, Angelina Beautiful/Clean.  

Angelina Beautiful/ Clean collected 480 pounds of medications. The DEA then took what was collected and disposed of it by incineration.
