pillsThe Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be participating in the province-wide initiative that will provide residents an opportunity to dispose of old and unused prescription medications. Prescription Drug Drop Off Day will be held on Saturday May 9, 2015.

The Lanark County OPP is making two locations available so that the public can simply and safely dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medications without exiting their vehicles.   Officers and volunteers will be on hand to take the medications from community members on May 9 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Carleton Place Location: Carleton Place OPP Detachment, 15 Coleman Street,
