The Ridgefield Police Department is participating in the prescription drug take-back initiative this weekend to promote the proper disposal of medications. Ridgefield Police say prescription drugs that languish in medicine cabinets create a public health and safety concern because they are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. On Saturday, from 10am to 2pm, unused and unwanted prescriptions and over-the-counter medications will be collected at the Ridgefield Police Department. The Drive-Thru Take Back will be set up. This service is free and completely anonymous. All collected medication will be taken to an incineration facility by Officers for destruction. There is a drug take-back box located in the front lobby of Ridgefield Police Headquarters, available 24 hours a day/365 days of the year and is also completely anonymous.
