App finds prescription drug disposal sites

SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - Looking for a place to drop of your unwanted prescription medication? There's an app for that.

Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says his department teamed up with the American Medicine Chest Challenge to help people find places to take their unwanted medicine.

The AMCC Rx drop app will help you find permanent prescription drug disposal sites.

The app features locations in Benton, Missouri at the Scott County Sheriff's Office at 131 S. New Madrid Street.

The app links to the AMCC directory of local, county and state law enforcement sponsored permanent collection sites across the country. Currently, the app links to hundreds of collection sites in 41 states across the country.

It is available in the Apple and Android stores.
