There is now a Prescription Drug Dropbox in the lobby of the Danbury Police Station. The box is available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week for people to safely dispose of unwanted, unused, and expired medications. Police Chief Patrick Ridenhour says this will help residents keep the medicines away from children, other unauthorized persons, and pets.
The prescription drug dropbox was donated by the Rite Aid Corporation’s KidCents Foundation Safe Medication Disposal Program. The Housatonic Valley Coalition Against Substance Abuse and Danbury-based Stand Together Make A Difference partnered with the Danbury Police Department to help address issues of substance abuse.
The Rotary Club has donated funding to pay for some liners for the box.
