MURFREESBORO (AP) — Middle Tennessee State University is accepting expired, unused and unwanted medications as part of its Drug Take-Back Day.

It takes place on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Both the MTSU campus community and general public are invited to participate.

According to a news release, the effort is part of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day . It aims to remove excess drugs from communities where they could be abused or misused, diverted into the wrong hands or disposed of in environmentally unsafe ways.

Both prescription and over-the-counter medicines will be accepted. Where possible, they should be left in their original packaging. Any personal identifying information on labels should be blacked out.

The drop-off location is adjacent to the Student Health, Wellness and Recreation Center at 1848 Blue Raider Drive.
