The program allows the anonymous drop-off of drugs to keep them from being flushed down toilets or thrown away.

The drop-offs mainly target prescription drugs like Vicodin, Oxycontin and Codeine. But residents can also get rid of any expired over-the-counter medications and illegal drugs, with no questions asked.
