This is a Great Way to Make Sure Old Medications Don't Get into the Wrong Hands

Do you have some old prescription drugs sitting around in your bathroom medicine cabinet? This program is designed so you can dispose of these drugs safely and they will stay out of the hands of others.

All you have to do to dispose of any medications you don't want, just drive up to the building and hand them to the police officers standing outside. They are making it super easy for you and fast too because you won't even have to get out of your car.

Items That Will Not Be Accepted

They can not accept: synergies or any type of sharps, inhalers, aerosol cans, mercury thermometers, and iodine-containing medications.
