Dispose of your unwanted prescriptions properly
Dropping off medication at one of the collection sites ensures proper disposal, meaning drugs don't end up in the wrong hands, or washed into the sewer system.
In October, the collection event, titled Operation: Medicine Cabinet, collected nearly 10,000 pounds of expired or unwanted medication, according to Drug Awareness and Prevention Inc., a non profit founded in 2007.
Willoughby Hills, Mayfield Village, Mayfield Heights, Gates Mills and Willowick police departments are some of the participating stations.
The Drug Enforcement Administration organizes a national collection event called National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
