People in Bell County can now safely get rid of unused medication.

Thursday morning, Operation UNITE set up a pill drop off box in Pineville city hall by the police department.

People can drop off medication in the box with no questions asked and then UNITE will properly dispose it.

"People can bring their old and unused medication to this location, and they don't have to keep them in their houses and don't have to dispose of them improperly, so we're giving them an opportunity to get rid of that they don't need anymore." Tom Vicini with Operation UNITE said.

Similar pill boxes are being set up in other communities this summer.
