RCPD Offers Drive-Up Collection April 30; New Drop Box Available Year-Round
The Rockville City Police Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office offer a safe, free and anonymous way to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs during National Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 30.
In cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration, city police will accept leftover — including expired — prescription drugs from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Rockville City Police Station parking lot at 2 W. Montgomery Ave. To make it quick and convenient, officers will be outside with easy drive-up and drop-off access, so there is no need to get out of your vehicle.
Illicit drugs, liquids, needles, sharps or syringes cannot be accepted, only pills or patches. All returned medications will be destroyed by the DEA.
National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a convenient and responsible means of disposal, keeping prescription drugs from potentially polluting our drinking water, while educating the public about the potential for abuse or theft of these medications.
Learn more about National Drug Take Back Day at www.dea.gov or call Cpl. Ronnie Crowe at 240-314-8974.
Residents can now also safely dispose of unused, unwanted or expired medication, with no questions asked, in a new prescription drug drop box that is available to the public 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in the front lobby of the Rockville City Police Station.
