Unused meds

can be dropped off at police station

The Munroe Falls Police Department has added a D.U.M.P (Dispose of Unused Medications Properly) Box inside the Police Station Lobby at 43 Munroe Falls Ave. for the use by citizens.

Here are the guidelines for using the box:

Keep the medicines in their original containers.

Mark out the name and address.

Make sure all lids are closed tightly.

Secure the medications inside a sealable plastic bag.

This box is for pills, capsules, or liquid medicines -- syringes cannot be accepted.
