Drug Take Back Program

The New Concord Police Department conducts a drug take back program in the spring and fall. On a date to be advertised, the police department can accept any unused medication other than liquids or needles.

The correct way to dispose of liquid medication is to mix the liquid with coffee grounds, saw dust, kitty litter, etc. Anything that will not be very appealing to animals, kids, etc. Then seal it in a plastic bag or container. Then you can throw it away with your normal trash. Just make sure all identifying labels are off of it before disposing.
