[ARCHIVED] TPAUD Prescription and OTC Medication Drop Box at the Trumbull Police Department

Prescription and OTC Medication Drop Box

Town residents looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications will now visit the safe, anonymous and secure permanent drop off location, anytime it is convenient for them. The Trumbull Partnership Against Underage Drinking (TPAUD) and the Trumbull Police Department have worked together to establish this permanent drug collection box as a way to reduce the supply of drugs that can be potentially harmful to kids, the water supply and the landfill. Trumbull is one of the first area towns to provide a safe, secure and environmentally friendly way to collect unwanted or expired household medication, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and unused pharmaceuticals. Trumbull residents won’t have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets.

Bring medications in original containers with the label removed.

Accepted: prescription, over-the-counter, pet medication, vitamins/supplements, patches and ointments, medication samples

Not Accepted: inhalers, needles (sharps), hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans, hazardous waste,

Open 365 days per year, 24 hours per day.  Located in the Trumbull Police Department Lobby.
