LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Angelina Beautiful/Clean will host its annualmedication disposal event on Saturday April 24 .

The event is held annually to promote safedisposal of prescription drugs.

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 They ask you not to flush them or bury them and having them out of yourhome if they are unused or out of date, this is the best way to dispose ofthem."
