MedDrop (Prescription Drug Disposal)

Old prescription drugs and over the counter medicine can have dangerous impacts on our community when they are not disposed of properly.  Safe prescription drug disposal not only keeps unwanted chemicals out of the environment, but it protects neighborhoods from the risk of prescription drug abuse and poisoning. 

Fitchburg's Med Drop services provide an easy way to properly discard of your expired or left over medications. See below for locations in Fitchburg and more about how to use Med Drop Recycling.
