Prescription Drug Drop Off Results

Medications collected by London police.

The London Police Service has released the results of its Prescription Drug Drop Off Day.

Just over 200 lbs of prescription medications were collected from about 130 people.  The medications included Tylenol 3, oxycodone, oxycocet, hydromorphone, and percocet. The oldest was from 1978. Police also took in some needles.

The province-wide program helps keep prescription drugs out of the wrong hands.

Police are also reminding citizens that if they have any old or unused prescription medication, they can be dropped off at pharmacies to ensure they are disposed of safely.
