Turn in your unused, expired medications Saturday for safe disposal

As much as the opioid crisis is born of myriad factors, combatting the misuse of prescription drugs by curtailing prescription lengths and drug quantities is a priority in reducing the number of affected people.

"You hear many times, people have knee surgeries and things like that and they're issued several weeks of opioids and they don't use them and they want to get rid of them".

"This program allows the public to properly dispose of unused, unneeded, or expired medications and narcotics free of charge".

It is time to clean out your medicine cabinet and hand in unused, unneeded and expired medication.

"In Connecticut, the total number of pounds collected previous year was 8,615 pounds and in MA the count total 27,294 pounds of unused or expired drugs that could have done a lot of harm if they fell into the wrong hands". Or an addict, hooked on prescription drugs, may decide to break in and go hunting. Loveland police said items that can not be accepted include needles and Epipens, mercury thermometers, oxygen containers, chemotherapy and radioactive drugs, pressurized canisters and illicit drugs. Both are from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. Saturday.
