MedReturn Drug Collection Unit at City Hall

The Newcastle Police Department has partnered with Influence the Choice - Drug Prevention Alliance for Youth to place a drug drop box just outside the entrance to City Hall. The drop box provides a safe and anonymous method to dispose of unwanted and expired prescription, over-the-counter and pet medications. Studies have shown that residential supplies of pharmaceutical controlled substances, like those found in home medicine cabinets, have become the drug of choice for drug abusers. Research has also shown that the quality of our environment and water supply are threatened by improperly disposed of medications. For more information visit the Newcastle Police web page.
