The Plymouth County Prescription Medication Disposal Program
Prescription Drug Abuse is a growing problem in our communities.
Under the federal Safe and Secure Disposal Act of 2010,
communities are now required to offer residents,
a method to collect and dispose of unused
or expired prescription medication in a legal,
secure and environmentally safe manner.
30 Police Departments and Campus Police Departments across Plymouth County now offer free, anonymous disposal of unused or expired medications that you no longer need. Med Return Boxes are located in the police department lobbies, and are accessible 24 hours a day. There is no fee involved for the disposal. You do not need to be a resident of the town to use this service. If your Police Department does not have a Med Return Box, please use the location nearest to you. Medications should be discarded in their original packaging. Please blackout any personal information on the label.
Participating Police Departments
The Prescription Medication Disposal Program is a collaborative effort between the District Attorney´s Office, The Sheriff´s Department, The Police Chiefs of Plymouth County, The Department of Public Health´s Bureau of Substance Abuse Services and Covanta Energy.
