Permanent Medication Drop Box Locations in the Region

Prescription drugs can pose risks if not disposed of correctly. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.
