Wolfforth Police Department unveils drug medication disposal drop-box


There's a new place to drop-off unused and expired medication in Wolfforth. 

StarCare has set up the drop box at its police department. It's designed for year-round disposal, available during business hours. 

StarCare reports many households have extra painkillers or pill that have expired just laying around. That poses a risk for children or makes them easier to sell on the street. 

"If we can reduce ease of access, we can put an indention into folks getting a hold of these things, maybe reducing an overdose, and fighting the battle of addiction," Starcare Program Director Ralph Barrera said.

The box is free to use and its maintenance is funded by money seized from drug dealers.
