IC Police boost drug disposal

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa City Police are using a grant to bolster their prescription medication disposal program.

The grant was provided as part of CVS/Pharmacy's "Medication Disposal for Safer Communities" program.

A red container will be placed in the lobby of the police station, accessible 24 hours a day.

People can drop off expired or unwanted drugs, excluding needles and aerosol cans.

Police believe this will help keep prescription meds from being misused on the streets.
