24-hour old medicine box possible for Elizabethtown

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Elizabethtown is planning on giving residents the option of getting rid of old medicines at any time.

The city plans to install a secure box where residents can get rid of pills safely.

But it must get approval from the Drug Enforcement Administration before starting the program.

The box would also have to be installed where it could be monitored at all times.

One proposal is to put the drop box in the police department lobby because it is staffed 24 hours a day and has video surveillance.
