GRAND FORKS — It's a safe way to get rid of any old medications you might have laying around the house.

Tuesday is Medication Take Back Day.

You can drive up to the Altru Health System parking lot and drop off any old or extra medications.

On Monday, we stopped by Safe Kids Grand Forks and met with one of the organizers.

She told us medications are the top cause of poisoning in kids.

“While medications are designed to help us with our ailments or our diseases or make us healthier, they can also pose a big risk to children and we need to think of those medications as also being a dangerous substance and getting them out of the homes,” said Carma Hanson of Safe Kids Grand Forks.

Medication Take Back Day starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m.
