Manchester police get grant to set up collection box for unused medications


MANCHESTER - Manchester police have received a grant to set up a collection box in the lobby of the police station where residents can safely get rid of unused medications.

The grant comes from CVS, which also recently funded a collection box at the offices of the Cheshire County Sheriff in Keene.

“The Manchester Police Department and Manchester Health Department are proud to partner with CVS/ pharmacy and we thank them for their commitment to help residents reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in our community," police Chief Nick Willard said.

The new collection box will be located inside the front lobby and will allow residents to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medication, including controlled substances.
