Drug Take Back Day September 27

     4 out of 10 teens who have misused a prescription drug got it from their parents' medicine cabinets. You can make a difference. Properly secure and dispose of unused and expired medications at the Winooski Police Department on Drug Take Back Day, September 27, 10 AM to 2 PM. The drop box a the WPD is available 24-hours a day, 7 days per week.

5 steps to protect children from the temptation of use:

  • Properly dispose of all expired or unused medications
  • Lock up and secure all medications
  • Talk to the children in your life about medication safety
  • Count and track your medications
  • Don't share medications with anyone, especially children
