“Convenient and safe disposal of unneeded medicines keeps drugs off the street and out of our rivers,” said St. Louis County Police Captain Kenneth Williams, the president of Missouri P2D2. “The new program gives families a safe way to get unused drugs out of household medicine cabinets – reducing the risks of teenagers experimenting with drugs and young children accidentally poisoned. Proper disposal is also an environmentally-friendly solution that protects our rivers.
