TEMPE, AZ (AP) -

Tempe police and federal drug enforcement agents are giving the public a chance to properly dispose of expired or unwanted prescription drugs in their homes.

The goal of a drug disposal event being held Saturday at a Tempe police substation is to combat drug abuse.

Authorities say the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.

People can anonymously dispose of the drugs at the event.
