Police Holding Prescription Drug Drop-Off

Published on: 2014/05/07 - in News

The 2014 Prescription Drug Drop-Off in Kingston is set to take place on Saturday, May 10 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

The drop off is being support and locally organized by Kingston Police in partnership with the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ontario Pharmacists’ Association, the Government of Ontario, and Public Safety Canada.

People are asked to bring in old or unused prescription medication bottles to help prevent the abuse of prescription drugs as well as to ensure they are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.

In a news release, Police have stated that citizens wishing to dispose of outdated, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously without having to get out of their vehicles.

Participants should remove or black out the bottle labels and drop them off at the Memorial Centre at 303 York St (map) in the west parking lot by the barns.
