The Ontario Provincial Police is providing residents with an opportunity to dispose of old and unused prescription medications this Friday, May 6th, 2022.

It will take place at the Leamington OPP Detachment from 1pm to 6pm. People wishing to dispose of outdated, unused and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously without getting out of their vehicles. Just pull up in front of the detachment, and an officer will assist with your drop-off.

“I encourage members of our community from across Essex County to take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of unused and old prescription medications during this year’s Drug Drop Off Day. Prescriptions are prescribed to those who require the medication and should be used in consultation with your physician. Maintaining unused drugs serves no purpose and could become a temptation to those in your family, so please use this opportunity to lawfully dispose of what you are currently storing at home,” says Essex County OPP Inspector Glenn Miller.
