Public Safety Canada is working with the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) Drug Abuse Committee and other partner agencies to hold the second annual National Prescription Drug Drop-off Day on Saturday May 10, 2014 just prior to Police Week. The purpose of this event is to encourage Canadians to drop off their unused prescription medication to local police and community partners at specified locations to ensure its safe disposal.
The Saskatchewan RCMP urge residents to dispose of unused prescription medications and will have the following three drop off locations May 10th from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.:
- Kindersley RCMP Detachment, 300 8th Avenue West, Kindersley, SK.
- Saskatoon RCMP Detachment, 400 Brand Place, Saskatoon, SK.
- RCMP 'F' Division Headquarters, 6101 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, Sk.
If you do not live in the areas listed above and would like to participate in the dropping off of your prescription medications, please attend to your local pharmacy who will gladly take them from you and dispose of them appropriately. Saskatchewan has a formal province-wide medication return program called the Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal program which allows consumers to return medication to the majority of the provinces community pharmacies. Consumers may also return medication to Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events that are managed by the provincial regional districts and municipalities.
The National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day is a pro-active approach to getting rid of unused and expired medication so that it does not end up in the wrong hands, particularly those of our children. In many examples of unwanted or expired medications falling into the wrong hands, such prescription medications have been abused by individuals leading to incidents of overdose, and in some cases, death. The misuse and abuse of prescription medication has become a public safety issue for communities and police services across the country, who are working together to draw attention to this public safety concern by participating in the Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day.
