New way to dispose of medication

    Sitka, Alaska (KINY) Police said the community is setting up ways for residents to get rid of unwanted, old prescription drugs.

    If you have expired medication, unused prescription drugs and over the counter medications you don't need, there are options for disposal that are safe.

    Sitka Counseling and the HOPE Coalition said there are new options of how to properly dispose of medication and drugs.

    A medication drop box was recently installed in the Sitka Police Department’s lobby on Oja Way. Everyone is welcome to come in and drop drugs or medication in the box, no questions asked.

    Other drop off locations will include Harry Race Pharmacy, SEARHC and Sitka Community Hospital.  Sitka Counseling provides medicine disposal bags for home use.
