Tip of the Week: Take Unwanted Medication to the Newton Police Department

Unused and expired prescriptions and over the counter medications should never be flushed down the toilet.  Instead, please bring expired, unwanted, or unused medicines to the kiosk in the Newton Police Department (1321 Washington St., Newton).

The safe disposal of medications will help reduce the chance that others may accidentally take or intentionally misuse the unneeded medicine.  If you have any questions about medication disposal, contact the Newton Human Health & Services department at (617) 796-1420.
