Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative

 The Belmont Police Department in conjunction with the Belmont Auxiliary Police and the DEA will be hosting a Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative to prevent the abuse and theft of old, unused and expired prescription drugs. Unfortunately, these drugs are highly susceptible to misuse by family and friends. In addition they can be improperly disposed of and end up in our environment, posing a potential health hazard.

          The Belmont Police will have a collection point set up at the DPW yard, 37C St., on Saturday April 29th from 10:00AM – 2:00PM.  Old or unused prescription drugs (No liquids) may be dropped off for free with no questions asked. You won’t even have to get out of your car. Please take some time to check your medicine cabinet and visit us on the 29th
