10,000 Pill Disposal Pouches Coming to St. Charles

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOX) – New medical pouches will soon be distributed throughout St. Charles to encourage safe disposal of prescription pain pills.

The Boys & Girls Club of St. Charles County announced on Monday that they received a donation of 10,000 disposal pouches from Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. The bags will be given out in the coming months.

Families can use them by filling them up with tap water and placing the pills inside. Once mixed, the drug becomes deactivated and the bag can be thrown in the trash.
