Unusued or Expired Medication

The DEA on April 30, 2011 had a turn in of unused or expired medication.  You could look up a location for drop-off at www.dea.gov or called (800) 882-9593.  In the past, costs for this program has been exorbant $190.00 per # collected, and the amount collected has been miniscule.  First, unless you read about the program in a newspaper or heard a public service announcement, most people do not even know about this program.  Second, there is a limited amount of drop-off sites. Third, just look at the costs of gasoline or disel to drive to and from the drop-off site.  LOOK AT THE FILL-A-BOX COLLECTION SYSTEM.
