Saturday, October 26th is National Drug Take Back Day. The Take Back Day is part of the DEA’s National Take Back Initiative to safely dispose of unwanted medications.
The State Police have collection sites inside their barracks, including:
Connecticut State Police Troop A
Southbury, CT 06488
Help prevent over-the-counter (cough medicine, pain relievers, etc.) and prescription drug abuse by dropping off any unwanted, expired, or unused medicines, vitamins, or nutritional supplements. All medications must be in original containers, with all names crossed out.
**The service is free and anonymous, no questions will be asked**
No needles or sharps will be accepted.
Examples of sharps include:
Connection needles/sets – needles that connect to a tube used to transfer fluids in and out of the body. This is generally used for patients on home hemodialysis.
