For years unused or unwanted medications have been disposed of down drains, which results in them ending up in our local water supplies, rivers, and lakes. Young people who abuse medications usually get them from unaware family members. Community members are encouraged to NOT hold onto unused medications and dispose of them properly at a local Take It to the Box Location, which is completely anonymous and confidential. All medications that are collected at Take It to the Box locations are taken to an incinerating location, which makes the medications inert and harmless to the environment.
