In partnership with Bissell Pharmacy and the Ridgefield Prevention Council, the Ridgefield Police Department will host a prescription drug take-back initiative to promote the proper disposal of medications Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Potentially dangerous, unused and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications will be collected at Bissell Pharmacy located at 23 Governor Street. People wishing to dispose of medications will not have to exit their vehicles.
This service is free and completely anonymous. All medications that are collected as part of this initiative are brought to an incineration facility for destruction by officers of the Ridgefield Police Department.
There is a prescription drug take-back box located in the front lobby of Police Headquarters (76 East Ridge Roadd). This take back box is available to the public 24 hours a day/365 days of the year and is also completely anonymous.
