Medication Take Back Program

Posted By Winchester Police on March 7th, 2011

Be Safe at Home – Help protect our environment.  Bring unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications to the Winchester Police Department for proper disposal.  Disposal is available 24 hours a day.

Guidelines for Disposal:

  • Take unused, unwanted or expired prescription and non-prescription drugs to the Winchester Medication Disposal Kiosk located in the lobby of the Winchester Police Department.
  • Keep medications in original bottle or packaging if possible.
  • Mark out your name and address on the prescription labels.
  • Put any liquid or glass container in a Ziploc bag provided at the kiosk and securely close the bag.  Insert pill containers or Ziploc bag into the kiosk’s mail slot and close the lid.
  • Winchester Coalition for a Safer Community sends collected medications to be incinerated as part of the ecological and safe disposal protocol.

 

For more information on this program, pick up a flyer in the Winchester Police Station lobby vestibule.
