Walgreens is making it easier for consumers to dispose of unwanted medications.

All Walgreens pharmacies that do not currently offer a safe medication disposal kiosk will now offer free dispose-Rx packets at no charge.

They're available on request for customers to safely discard their unwanted medications at home.

Dispose-Rx packets contain a blend of solidifying materials that turn medications into a useless gel before throwing them away.

The company says that 78% of Americans now live within 5-miles of a drug disposal option.
