Cambridge Police to Hold Drug Take-Back Day April 27


Drug Take Back Day

The Cambridge Police Dept., in collaboration with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, will be holding a prescription drug take-back day Saturday, Apr. 27, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., at the Robert W. Healy Public Safety Facility, 125 Sixth St., Cambridge. Personnel will be available in the lobby of the Police Department to accept your unused or unwanted prescription drugs.

Residents 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 and soil.

For more information and/or a list of accepted prescription drugs, please refer to the information available online at

Can’t make it on April 27? Residents can anonymously deposit unused medications at any time in the drop box located in the first floor lobby of the police station’s Records Unit.
