New Drug Disposal Program

Press Release

October 4, 2013

Effective October 3, 2013, The Plymouth Police Department is a participant in a new drug disposal program in cooperation with the Plymouth County District Attorney and Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department. A permanent Med Return Receptacle has been installed in the Plymouth Police Station lobby to collect unused, unwanted or expired prescription and over-the counter drugs.  Residents are invited to use this means to safely and securely dispose of their medications.  All deposits to the receptacle are anonymous and there is no requirement to check in with the Station Officer.

The collection units were funded in part by the District Attorney, Sheriff’s Department, local police and the Department of Health-Bureau of Substance Abuse.  Covanta Energy, the world’s largest owner and operator of Energy-from-Waste facilities, will provide the environmentally safe means to dispose of these collections.  Health officials urge residents NOT to dispose of medications by tossing pills in the trash or down the toilet, which poses a risk to water supplies.

Sharps, other bio-hazard items such as syringes, or liquids are prohibited from being placed into the Med Return Receptacle.

The Plymouth Police Department encourages the residents of Plymouth to remove their unneeded medications from their homes, which reduces access to addictive medications for accidental or intentional misuse by children or adults in the home.
