Tops Markets has installed disposal bins in the pharmacy departments at 20 of its stores where shoppers can dispose of prescription medications.
Tops worked with the Drug Enforcement Administration for approval. The bins are clearly marked and locked.
Proper disposal keeps drugs from being dumped into the public water supply, and out of the hands of people with drug addictions. The installation of the bins coincides with the DEA's National Drug Take Back Day, celebrated Saturday.
Drugs can be placed anonymously in boxes at:
