Safely dispose of old prescription and over-the-counter medicines this week as part of Operation Medicine Drop.
More than 250 locations across the state will be accepting old medicines on different days during the week.
Last year, more than 15 million doses of old medicines were collected during the events. Law enforcement agencies that collect drugs this week will turn them over to the SBI for safe disposal. The SBI will destroy the drugs using incinerators approved by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The event, part of National Poison Prevention Week, is sponsored by The Attorney General's Office, the SBI, Safe Kids North Carolina, the Riverkeepers of NC, Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of North Carolina and local law enforcement agencies.
