Easton Police have installed a new Medication Disposal Box in the lobby of the police department on Morehouse Road. They're now a permanent drug take back site, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Easton Police say the best way to dispose of most types of old, unwanted, or expired medicines--both prescription and over the counter--is to drop the medicine off at a drug take back site. The collected medications are permanently disposed of by incineration at an EPA approved location. Easton Police will continue to participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration's National Drug Take Back Day, coming up October 23 from 10am to 2pm. That collection will take place at Samuel Staples Elementary School. Chief Richard Doyle says it's important to raise awareness about the serious dangers of keeping unused medications in the home, especially when it comes to opioid pain medications falling into the wrong hands.
