Citywide Senior Center

Cambridge Council on Aging, 617-349-6220

Got old medications taking up space at home? Don't flush them--it's bad for our water! Protect your family and environment from harmful drugs by disposing of them safely.

To recognize National Prescription Drug Takeback Day, the Cambridge Public Health Department (CPHD), the Cambridge Police Department, and the Council on Aging are coming together to host this special medication “Takeback” event.  Personnel will be available on-site in the lobby to accept unwanted or unused prescriptions, over-the-counter meds, and vitamins. Sharps and liquids will NOT be accepted.

If you can’t make this event, you can bring unwanted meds to the Cambridge Police Station lobby at 125 Sixth Street any day, any time.

For any questions about the event, please contact Danielle McPeak, the CPHD Prevention and Recovery Specialist, at dmcpeak@cambridgepublichealth.org.
