William White of Beckley speaks with WVU pharmacy students, from left, Julie Brown, Alex Lawther and Megan McCluskey, about the proper way to dispose of drugs during a drug disposal day at Colony Drug on Robert C. Byrd Drive in Beckley Monday. Brown said about 20 individuals came in and the group collected a large amount of medications, from prescription medicines to home health items. She said most of those who dropped off meds had dosage changes or did not finish the prescription. Colony Drug has a medicine box year-round for those who wish to drop off noncontrolled substances, she said.
