Chief Troy Morton of the Penobscot County Sheriff's Department discards unused prescription medications as part of the National Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 30, 2011, at Bangor's Cascade Park. Coordinated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the program offers the opportunity to safely disgard of unused or unwanted prescription drugs, which will then be incinerated. Due to the convenient location, Morton received a steady flow of drop-offs throughout the morning. "It's like a McDonald's drive-through," Morton said, "you can just pull in and out."
