From the Greenville Chamber of Commerce:
Greenville, MI–
On April 30th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Greenville Public Safety and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your medications for disposal to the Public Safety lobby at 415 S. Lafayette Street, on the southwest corner of M-57 and M-91 in Greenville.  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last September, Americans turned in 242,000 pounds—121 tons—of prescription drugs at nearly 4,100 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners.
