The Ohio Attorney General's program will be piloted in several southern Ohio counties.
Ohioans with out-dated or unused prescription drugs will soon have the opportunity to drop them off around the clock at local law enforcement agencies. The Ohio Attorney General’s office is partnering with several police departments and sheriff’s offices to set up drop boxes.
Attorney General Mike Dewine says this gives people another option.
The boxes will be rolled out in Adams, Athens, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Fayette, Gallia, Greene, Hamilton, Highland, Hocking, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Montgomery, Pickaway, Pike, Preble, Ross, Scioto, Vinton, Warren, and Washington Counties.
Once they have a chance to evaluate the program, Dewine says they’ll consider rolling it out statewide.
