Got Drugs? – Safe Disposal on April 28th at Police Department

Got Drugs? Looking for a place to dispose of unused or expired medication for safe disposal – Ridgewood Police Dept on Saturday, April 28 from 10AM to 2PM.

This program allows residents a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted, expired or unused prescription medication. Often, some of these medicines languish in the home and are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high—more Americans currently abuse prescription drugs than the number of those using cocaine, hallucinogens, heroin, and inhalants combined, according to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Please bring any unwanted, expired or unused prescription medication to the Police department 131 N. Maple Ave and place them in the collection bin located near the Police Desk.
