If you don't properly dispose of the unused or expired prescription drugs in your home, they might find a new one.
Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse. Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor's supervision. Take-back programs like this one are the best way to dispose of old drugs. Join us in the Police Department / City Hall Lobby in 2021, date and time TBD, to drop off your left-over or unused medication. We will be accepting unused medication including liquid medications that are sealed with a cap. We cannot, however, accept syringes.
If you are unable to drop off your unused medication at this event, the next best way to dispose of those drugs is to:
Remove the medication(s) from their bottle(s)
Mix the medication with something unappealing like used kitty litter or coffee grounds
Seal them in a bag or disposable container, and throw that away
