New York State Medication Drop Box Program:  

Abuse of prescription drugs is a major public health problem in New York State. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. To help address this problem, the New York State Department of Health has established a permanent medication drop box program through the state, county, and local law enforcement agencies. The program will expand the options currently available for households to dispose of discontinued, expired or unwanted medications in a manner that considers public health, as well as the environment.
