Drug Take-Back Day, April 29 (and drop-off available at Public Safety Building 24×7)

Safely dispose of expired or unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medicines.

The Wayland Police Department is conducting a Drug Take Back Day on April 29. Also, remember that you can dispose of old prescription drugs at any time at the Public Safety Building.

Eliminating unused and unwanted medications from your home will help keep your family, your environment and your community safe.

Illegal use and abuse of prescription drugs is an epidemic in communities across the Commonwealth. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 52 million people over age 12 have used prescription drugs non-medically. Seventy percent say they got the drugs from friends or family.

By properly disposing of your unused or expired medication, you can help us fight this epidemic by limiting the access to these powerful drugs. You are also making a difference for our planet by disposing of medications in an environmentally-sound way.
Medications can be disposed of 24 hours a day at your local police station.

Clean out your medicine cabinet today!
