The University of Virginia Health System offers a similar service:

“To help Central Virginia residents safely and securely get rid of unwanted or unused prescription medications, University of Virginia Health System has recently added a medication receptacle at its main outpatient pharmacy.

The receptacle is located in the outpatient pharmacy waiting area inside the lobby of UVA’s Education Resource Center at 1240 Lee St., across from UVA Medical Center. Upon entering the waiting area, visitors will find the large green receptacle on the left side. The outpatient pharmacy and receptacle are both open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
