People across Mid-Missouri had the chance to properly get rid of some expired and unwanted pills.
Several organizations sponsored a drug take back event.
Members of the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency took possession of the medications for proper disposal.
Organizers said the take back event helps prevent drug abuse.
Volunteers at Columbia??s Truman Veteran??s Hospital said they have the event in the spring and fall.
They don??t have exact numbers, but they said today??s collection was their largest ever.
If you didn??t get a chance to visit one of today??s locations, the Columbia and Jefferson City Police Departments have 24 hour drop boxes at their main headquarters.
