In order to address the environmental and public health concerns associated with the abuse of prescription medication and the improper disposal of medications, the Southampton Town Police Department is implementing a new program, Operation Medicine Cabinet.
The purpose of this program is to collect pharmaceutical waste that consists of controlled substances, prescription medications, unwanted medication, and over-the-counter medications that are no longer needed or have passed their expiration date.
Needles and/or liquid medications will not be accepted
Pharmaceutical waste from pharmacies, veterinarians, or any other pharmaceutical business will not be accepted
Only items from private households will be accepted
