Did you know Scituate now has an anonymous, 24-hour Drop Box in the Police Station lobby? Please clean out your medicine cabinets of unused or expired medicines – especially prescription painkillers. 60-70% of all first-time pills come from a friend, relative, or their rainy-day stash.
Leaving expired or unnecessary medications around the house could be, in the words of Scituate Police Chief Michael Stewart, an invitation for trouble. … The drop box is available to take medications – prescriptions, over-the-counter, pet meds, vitamins – 24 hours, seven days a week. Drop-offs are done anonymously – there are no forms to fill out, no checking in at the desk.
“It’s like mailing a letter…..Just drop them in the slot.”
