...a prescription for clean water & safe kids

NO BUSINESSES ALLOWED. All waste pharmaceuticals must be generated by a household.

IMPORTANT: Police department collections are ONLY open to residents within the participating community. Unused pharmaceuticals will ONLY be accepted in a clear plastic bag. Empty unused pills from the container into a clear plastic bag and dispose of pill bottles or containers into your recycling bin or the garbage. You do not have to take individual pills out of plastic pillow or bubble packaging. Liquids are not accepted by all police departments. Check with your police department to see if it will accept liquids.

NEVER flush or pour unused or expired medicine down the drain. Water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove all of them and trace amounts of pharmaceuticals are showing up in rivers and lakes around the world.

BRING: Prescription and over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays, creams, and pet medications.

DO NOT BRING: Illegal drugs, needles/sharps, inhalers, aerosol cans, bio-hazardous material (anything containing a bodily fluid or blood), personal care products (shampoo, soaps, lotions, sunscreens, etc.), household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, oil, gas).
