This drop-off bin for leftover medicine is designed to prevent the abuse of prescription drugs. Sponsored by CVS pharmacy, the bin was installed as part of Drug Take Back Day in the town of Cairo, New York. This provides Cairo residents with a safe way to dispose of their medications. Located by Angelo Canna Park, the singular 24 hour drop-off bin also makes it easier for local police to manage disposals, as they only have to issue one set of instructions.

As prescription drug abuse continues to be a problem across the United States, this solution gives people a way to get rid of old medication without having to worry about them being picked up and used by addicts.
