Cape Breton Regional Police encourage residents to dispose of unused prescription medications - Police across Canada participating in National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day
May 7, 2015
Cape Breton Regional Police are working with police across Nova Scotia and Canada this weekend, to draw attention to the abuse and misuse of prescription drugs, which significantly impacts public safety.
On May 9th, Cape Breton Regional Police invite you to bring old and unused prescription medications for safe, environmentally friendly and anonymous disposal, as part of a National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day. Properly disposing of these drugs keeps them out of the hands of those who they weren’t intended for, reducing risk of overdose and opportunity for criminal activity, and it prevents unwanted chemicals from entering our water and waste stream.
What: National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day
When: Saturday, May 9th - 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Where: Pharmacies throughout the CBRM
