Walmart is launching a new opioid disposal product in an effort to help fight opioid abuse.

The company says the product, which is called “Dispose-RX,” provides a safe and effective way to get rid of unused opioid medication.  

According to the manufacturer, when Dispose-RX is added to a pill bottle with warm water, it separates the medication into a bio-degradable gel.

Walmart pharmacies will provide “Dispose-RX” at no cost to patients filling new class-two opioid prescriptions.
