Prescription Drug Disposal

Got Drugs

Do you or someone you know have unwanted, expired, unused medications (prescription, controlled substances, OTC, herbal, veterinary) cluttering your medicine cabinet?  Take this opportunity to spring clean!  Proper disposal is important to keep drugs off our streets & away from our kids… and out of our water streams.

The State of Connecticut has a program that is available 24/7/365!  You can visit one of 45+ local police departments and drop off unwanted medications in a drop box located in their lobby… no questions asked.  (The federal DEA will no longer be sponsoring drug take back programs every 6 months.)
