FITCHBURG — The Health and Police departments will be participating in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. in front of the Legislative Building next to City Hall.
In order to make the process even quicker, residents can just drive up and drop off their unwanted prescriptions for proper disposal.
In October of 2022, the city collected 113 pounds of prescription drugs for disposal. This program gets unused prescription drugs out of medicine cabinets, thereby reducing the opportunity for use and/or abuse.
Fitchburg Street Outreach will be available with resource materials and Naloxone for distribution. The Health Department is also collecting new, still-packaged underwear of all sizes, which will be provided to Fitchburg Public Schools for distribution to students in need.
Contact Street Outreach at (978) 829-1854 with any questions. Find out more about Prescription Drug Take Back Day on the Board of Health Facebook page.
