(INDIANAPOLIS) - A $30,000 grant from Eli Lilly will be used to fund 100 new prescription drug disposal sites at pharmacies in Indiana.

The Yellow Jug Old Drugs program organized by Great Lakes Clean Water-U.S. Clean Water provides prescription drug disposal services to pharmacies so members of the public can turn in unused medications for safe disposal and avert potential misuse.

The program provides participating pharmacies with collection jugs and ongoing disposal services. Currently, 29 pharmacies in Indiana participate in Yellow Jug Old Drugs program. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says encouraging safe drug disposal is a key goal of the Indiana Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force, which has helped encourage permanent drug disposal locations in all but four of Indiana's 92 counties.
