CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A new effort is under way to help St. Louis-area residents get rid of unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications.
The program announced Friday sets up four collection boxes at St. Louis County police precincts. There is no charge and residents can turn in the medications anonymously.
The effort is a partnership among police, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, Missouri American Water and Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District. The goal is to keep medications out of the wrong hands and to protect the environment from improper disposal of medications.
