Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock attended the “grand opening” of a permanent disposal box for old or unused prescription drugs in Hamilton.

The box is at the entrance to Hamilton’s City Hall on South Second Street and was installed as part of the “Operation Medicine Cabinet.” Such boxes have been installed in towns across the state and are disposal of residents’ expired or unwanted medications – no questions asked.

Hamilton Police Lt Steve Snavely said that there is no charge for dropping your old drugs from the medicine cabinet, however, don’t drop off any needles or any chemo/radioactive drugs or other non-pharmaceutical waste.

Bullock said that Montana ranks third in the nation for teen abuse of prescription pain relievers. About70 percent of teens who use prescription drugs for non-medical purposes get those drugs from a friend or a family member.

Hamilton Police Chief Ryan Oster said that the drop box will help keep the drugs out of the wrong hands and out of the water system.
