Safety of CitizensPolitics

Winter Park officials have installed a prescription drug drop-off station in the city's Public Safety building for residents to properly dispose of unwanted or unused medications.

The Police Department reported Friday that it placed a Prescription Reclamation Station in the building because of the success of earlier take-back events.

The program is designed to help the community by allowing people to safely dispose of prescription drugs.

Items that will also be accepted: Over-the-counter pills, prescription and over-the-counter creams in sealed containers, dermal patches and liquid medicine if sealed in a container and in a zip-lock bag.

The station will be accessible during traditional business hours, Monday through Friday. The Public Safety building is at 500 N. Virginia Ave.
