Drug Drop Off Day Saturday

Drug-collection-OPPPrescription medications can be misused in ways not intended by the physician who prescribes them. In an effort to help keep drugs out of the wrong hands, the Ontario Provincial Police will be supporting Prescription Drug Drop Off Day by participating in the collection of unused or expired prescription medications.

Police and health agencies in communities across the province will work together Saturday, May 9th to encourage residents to dispose of unused and expired prescription medication in a secure and environmentally-friendly manner.

The OPP will be making several sites available for residents to drop off unwanted prescription medications for disposal on Saturday May 9th between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Prince Edward County residents should go to the Prince Edward County OPP Detachment located at 569 County Road 1, Picton between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.  to dispose of any unused or expired prescription medication.

“We see results when police work together with communities, health agencies and the citizens of this province, working together mobilizing for community safety and well-being,” said Anthony Mann, PEC OPP Community Services Officer. “Police would like to remind the public that all pharmacies in Ontario will accept your unused prescriptions anytime.”
