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. With the current drug epidemic in Summit County, and prescription medication being a serious problem especially with youth, the department would like to provide a safe and easy way for residents to dispose of unused medications. 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.
