Pill drop held in New Hanover county

Wilmington, NC (WWAY) — Volunteers at New Hanover Regional Medical Center hosted a pill drop Saturday afternoon for anyone with expired or unwanted medication.

Officials say events like these allow the public to quickly dispose of medications without hurting the environment or themselves.

“We’ve had a tremendous response,” said Kathy Rawlings. “We had people here at 8:30 AM. People lined up, it’s been a great response and everyone’s been very positive about bringing in the medication and happy to have a way to dispose of it properly “

Officials and volunteers helped sort thousands of pills into three piles which were then turned over to the DEA to be propertly destroyed.
