Getting rid of your unwanted prescription drugs just got easier.
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department has teamed up with the County Public Works to permanently enact "Operation Medicine Cabinet."
Secured boxes have been installed in front of every sheriff station where people can drop off their expired and unused medications to be disposed of properly.
The exception is in Cuyama where the department is working to get one set up.
A sheriff spokesperson said the goal is to keep pollutants out of the storm drains and drugs out of the hands of teens.
The "Operation Medicine Cabinet" campaign debuted back in October with six collection sites.
The department has set up the permanent drop off sites because the campaign was so successful.
