LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Angelina Beautiful/Clean will host its annual medication disposal event on Saturday April 24 .

The event is held annually to promote safe disposal of prescription drugs.

"It's for controlled narcotics and things like that," Amanda Anderson said. "We just don't want to see them out on the street, so properly disposing of them on this day is your number one outlet. They ask you not to flush them or bury them and having them out of your home if they are unused or out of date, this is the best way to dispose of them."

Residents can drop off medications at the Lufkin Police Department located at 300 E. Shepherd. The event runs from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.
