City of Brentwood , state Tennessee
| 5
   Residents have dropped 4 , 952 pounds of prescription drugs into the Drop Boxes located at Brentwood City Hall and Brentwood Police Headquarters over the past four years .   On average , about 1 , 000 pounds are collected each year .   In 2018 , the City of Brentwood partnered with the
   Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation
    , the Tennessee Dangerous Drugs Task Force , and the Williamson County Anti - Drug Coalition to install a prescription drug drop box in the city hall lobby , located at 5211 Maryland Way .   When the new Brentwood Police Department Headquarters opened last spring , a second drug box was placed at the building located at 910 Heritage Way .
   Program administrator , Brentwood Police Officer Bill Reape , says since 2018 , he has emptied the boxes 155 times .   “We are so thankful that residents and anyone in Brentwood uses this drop box , ” Officer Reape said . “This is a safe way to help control the spread of opioid addiction .   People do not need expired or unused prescription pain pills in their home , so our drop box provides a safe and easy way to get rid of prescription medicines , ” Officer Reape added .   
   Once the pills are removed from the drop box , they are sent to the state where they are incinerated .   This initiative also protects Brentwood’s environment by keeping drugs out of landfills and our water supply .
   Both drop boxes are available 24 hours a day , 365 days per year , and is in an area under video camera surveillance in the front lobby at each building .   Drop - off is free , and no forms are required .  
   The Brentwood Police Department
