The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency will collect potentially dangerous controlled substances at area police departments Friday and this weekend as part of the National Take-Back Initiative.

The collections give residents a change to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for law enforcement to destroy.

Redstone Highlands Senior Living Communities' Murrysville campus will join borough police in a collection from 2-3 p.m. Friday at the campus.

On Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., the following police departments and a drugstore are participating in the program:
