“In all these locations, we have the drop boxes inside the facilities,” said Major terry Wood. “What this is, is for prescription medication. We have a box where you can take old prescription and unused prescription medication and drop it off in these boxes so that the medications don‘t make it into the wrong hands.” Wood does ask that personal information lablesbe pulled off of any medication in its original container.
