Cape Elizabeth police will hold a collection of unwanted medicine from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, April 27, 2018 at the Public Safety building, 325 Ocean House Road.

Unused and unwanted medications, both over-the-counter and prescription, will be collected and disposed in an environmentally safe way. Police urge residents to take part in the collection to avoid accidental overdose and to keep medications out of the waste stream.

The collection is part of national Drug Take Back Initiative, sponsored by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

If you cannot come on Drug Take Back Day, police will accept unwanted medications at the station daily during office hours, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

For more information please contact Cape Elizabeth Officer Darin Estes, 207-767-3323.
