From the Aberdeen Police Department:
On Monday, July 6, 2015, The Aberdeen Police Department began providing a new service and resource for its citizens to dispose of prescription medications and other allowable medicines. The drug disposal kiosk is located in front of the entrance way to the Aberdeen Police Department’s front lobby at 60 North Parke Street Aberdeen, Maryland. The med-return kiosk is clearly labeled and looks similar to a large mailbox. In addition the kiosk has a mounted sign on the collection unit to advise the citizens what medications they can or cannot dispose of.
Items that are accepted in the collection unit are prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription ointments, over the counter medications, vitamins, samples and medication for pets. Items that are not accepted in the collection unit are hydrogen peroxide, thermometers, inhalers, needle-sharps, (bloody infectious waste), ointments lotions or liquids, aerosol cans and medications from businesses or clinics.
The intent of Aberdeen Police Department for providing such a service for its citizens and the community abroad are to “Keep Prescription Medicines Away From Our Children and Our Water Supply”
