Cambridge Police Prescription Drug Take Back Day
The Cambridge Police Department, in collaboration with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, will be holding a prescription drug take-back day on Saturday, Oct 29, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., at the Robert W. Healy Public Safety Facility, 125 Sixth St., Cambridge.
Personnel will be available to accept your unused or unwanted prescription drugs. Citizens should turn in their unused prescription drugs because:
* Children and animals could be poisoned if they find and swallow drugs.
* Drugs can be scavenged and illegally sold.
* Unused pharmaceuticals are environmental toxins; flushing them down the toilet or sink can release them into our drinking water
For more information and a list of accepted prescription drugs, please refer to our website at http://www.cambridgema.gov/CityOfCambridge_Content/documents/FLYER_DropBox.pdf
Can’t make it on October 29? Residents may now anonymously deposit unused medications at any time in the drop box located in the first floor lobby of the police station’s Records Unit.
Cambridge Police ask that residents comply with the following standards when making a deposit at the police department:
* Locate the collection box and place medications in a plastic bag provided at the location.
* Seal the bag and drop the bag into the box.
* Open containers of liquid and syringes will not be accepted at this time.
