New Castle Co. police unveil prescription drop box

    ew Castle County residents will soon have another option for getting rid of unwanted medications.

    County police plan to unveil a prescription drug drop box at the department’s headquarters next week.


    Several times a year the Drug Enforcement Agency holds a National “”Prescription Drug Take- Back Day,” but the drop box will allow people to safely dispose of expired, unwanted and unused prescription drugs whenever they want.

    Police say the drop box will help keep those drugs from being used in illegal activity.
