The Medford Police Department and the City of Medford’s Board of Health will be sponsoring a National Drug Take Back Initiative at the Medford City Hall rear parking lot on Saturday, September 27th from 10AM to 2PM.
This is part of a nationwide effort to take back prescription drugs. Residents will be able to turn in any unused or expired medication for safe disposal. This includes any pills, tablets, capsules, cough medicines, and any other medications. This service is free and anonymous for residents.
Needles/syringes, medical devices (IV bags, home infusion items), thermometers, and medical instruments will NOT be accepted.
The event is for residential drop offs ONLY and not for doctors’ or veterinarians’ offices.
