It is important to regularly clean out your medicine cabinet of expired, unused and unwanted medications. While prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines are legal products, using them without a doctor’s recommendation can be just as dangerous as using illegal drugs. Others can misuse these medicines, leading to overdoses or even addiction by those you love. You can be a hero, and help prevent the misuse of medications. Drop off your unused medications at a secure prescription drug drop box near you. Visit for a complete list of sites in the Capital Area. The service is free, and no questions are asked.
