Prescription Drug Disposal http://www.cheshirect.org/news/prescription-drug-disposal/ 2014-04-24T16:46:01 Administrator http://www.cheshirect.org/news/prescription-drug-disposal/       Expired and unneeded medications can be a danger to have around, and can be harmful to the environment if put in the trash.  The Cheshire Police Department is pleased to provide a service to our residents to simplify safe disposal of prescription and OTC drugs.

     There is a drop box in the lobby of the Cheshire Police Department at 500 Highland Avenue where residents can dispose of old and unwanted prescription and OTC drugs, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The items are handled only by a Cheshire Police Officer, and are sealed in bags and incinerated.  It is not necessary to remove labels.  It would be helpful if liquids were placed inside a plastic bag so they don’t leak.

     Only medication can be accepted; please DO NOT dispose of needles in the drop box.
