A drug take-back event is scheduled for this weekend in Frederick County.

The event will be held Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon at the Walkersville Fire Department, 79 W. Frederick St., according to a news release.

Residents are urged to bring unused prescription drugs, narcotics and syringes for safe disposal.

Similar events are planned for September in Middletown and for December in New Market.
