Did you know New London has a Prescription Drug Drop-Off Box! Prescription drugs are fast becoming the drug of choice for minors. Since prescription drugs are in every home with easy access, today’s youth are having “pill parties” and taking drugs that were never meant for their consumption.
Expired prescription drugs that are flushed down the toilet will eventually be introduced into our water supply. The best way to dispose of old prescription drugs is through a drug drop-off box. The New London Community & Campus Coalition (NLCCC) purchased a prescription drug drop-off box for the community to dispose of prescription drugs properly. When the box is full, the New London Police Department will send it up to the incinerator to be burned.
When any prescription drugs are dropped in the box there are no questions asked. You may simply drop them in the box and leave. The prescription drug drop-off box is ready to use 24-7.
