Did you know you can dispose of your prescription medication and needles at the Methuen Police Department?


Did you know you can dispose of your prescription medication and needles at the Methuen Police Department?

We wanted to take a moment and remind everyone we have two drop boxes located in our police station lobby that the public can access 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.

Our MedReturn Drug Collection Unit allows citizens to drop off expired or unwanted prescription medications. Simply bring your medication to the station and place the medication in the box. We will safely dispose of all medications. Our only request is that loose pills are not placed in the box.

The Sharps Container Disposal Unit allows residents to dispose of used needles in a safe manner. Simply bring your sharps in a safe container for disposal. Don't have a safe container? No problem. We have some for you to use next to the unit.
