The Walpole Police Department is again participating in National ‘Drug Take Back Day’ sponsored by the US Dept of Justice – Drug Enforcement Administration.

Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue and can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse. Unused drugs should not be just thrown away where they can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed can contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment. For more information on prescription drug abuse go to http://www.dea.gov. or call the Walpole Police Department at (603) 445-2058.
