Prescription Drop Off Program Comes to Hagerstown

The program is designed for community members to have a secure place to drop off unwanted or expired prescriptions instead of throwing them in the trash or even down the drain.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. - The Washington County Health Department is partnering with the Maryland State Police to stop the waste of prescription drugs.

The Prescription Take Back Program is now at the Maryland State Police's Hagerstown Barrack. The program is designed for community members to have a secure place to drop off unwanted or expired prescriptions instead of throwing them in the trash or even down the drain.

Residents can walk into the lobby and just drop the medicine into the drop box. The process is simple and anonymous.

"Prescription medicine is widely abused and its quickly escalating as one of the most abused drugs out there," said Trooper William Talbert.

The drop off box is open 24 hours a day for anyone that wants to stop by and discard their prescriptions.
