The Maplewood Police Department is participating in the nationwide Drug Diversion Program sponsored by the US Drug Enforcement Administration. DEA is coordinating a one-day collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s homes.
The program is designed to give the public an opportunity to dispose of their unwanted prescription medications. Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply that fuel abuse and are an unacceptable risk to the public health and safety.
Residents may bring their unwanted prescription medications to the Maplewood Police Department at 7601 Manchester Road on Saturday, October 27, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A police officer will collect the medication and forward it to the Drug Enforcement Administration for disposal. The service is free and anonymous.
