Placement of the box here at Mercedes City Hall, will facilitate access to residents, so that they can properly dispose of their medication, without having to wait until take-back days. The drop-box is a safe and anonymous way to dispose of unused, or expired medication. The main goal is to reduce the availability of prescribed medication that may result in misuse or abuse by children, youth, or adults.

This prescription drop box allows an opportunity to educate the community about the dangers that prescription medications pose if left unattended or improperly discarded.
