Safe prescription drug disposal

If you have prescription drugs that you are no longer taking, why leave them in your cabinet?

What should you do to dispose of them properly?
Drop them in the trash? NoFlush them down the toilet or drain? No
Bring them to the safe disposal drop box at the Franklin Police Station.

911 Panther Way, Franklin, MA

The kiosk is located just inside the front door.

  1. Open the handle 
  2. deposit your prescription containers 
  3. close the handle

As easy as 1, 2, 3!


Coincidentally, the newspaper has this article today:

Drug drop-off day is April 27

Local police departments will once again join forces with the Drug Enforcement Administration to get rid of residents' unused prescription medicine when the sixth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is held Saturday, April 27.

Note the DEA site does not list Franklin but the kiosk is at the Police Headquarters!
