Prescription Drug Drop Off Day Saturday
The OPP and other local Police Services are repeating their successful Prescription Drug Drop Off Day. The province-wide initiative is this Saturday, May 10th.
It’s an opportunity to get ride of unwanted or expired prescription medications. Officers and volunteers will be on hand at more than 60 OPP detachment locations to take the medications from 10:00 until 3:00 that day.
Locally, officers will be accepting unused or expired medication at:
South Bruce OPP Detachment, Kincardine
Walkerton OPP Detachment, Brant Township
North Perth County OPP Detachment, Listowel
Perth County OPP Detachment, Sebringville
West Perth Fire Hall, Mitchell
Maitland Valley Medical Centre, Goderich
Bill’s Valu-Mart, Highway 26, east of Meaford
Owen Sound Police Station
Hanover Police Station
Wellington County OPP Operations Centre, Fergus
Bruce Peninsula OPP Detachment, Wiarton.
Saugeen Shores Police Service will also be part of the Prescription Drug Drop Off Day, between 9:00 and noon at the Port Elgin office.
In last year’s province-wide campaign, over 300 kilograms of medications were turned in by about 730 people.
