It is a chance for residents to safely dispose of unused medications to keep them out landfills and the water supply.
 
In Peoria County, drop off sites are available at the Chillicothe, Bartonville, Peoria Heights, and Peoria Police departments.
 
In the twin cities, you can go to Eastland Pharmacy, Ryan Pharmacy, Merle Pharmacy or Atrium Pharmacy.
