As you may know, keeping unused medications on hand is a public health risk, especially if they’re found by children and young people. Flushing medications down the toilet is bad for both public health and the environment.
Please check your own medicine cabinet for old medications, both prescription and over-the-counter items. Vitamins, veterinary medications, narcotics, pills, and liquids will also be accepted. This material will be appropriately destroyed by the Gloucester Police Department. (Other items – such as syringes, needles, thermometers, IV bags, personal care products, empty containers, and the like – will not be accepted.)
Please also pass the word to friends and neighbors. We hope to see you Saturday morning! Thank you.
