Houlton Police Department partners with Adopt-A-Block to sponsor “Drug Takeback”

The Houlton Police Department is partnering with Adopt-A-Block of Aroostook to sponsor the National “Drug Takeback” initiative.

The event will take place on October 28th.

Anyone with unused, unwanted or expired medications is urged to drop them off for safe disposal at the Houlton Police Department from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This includes prescription, over-the-counter or veterinary pills, drops and ointments.

In addition, the Houlton Police Department has a “needle disposal Kiosk” that will be available for sharps disposal. All sharps must be placed in a puncture resistant container.

This disposal is completely anonymous and free of charge. The Houlton Police Department and Adopt-A-Block of Aroostook support this program to safe guard and protect our citizens and environment.

Volunteers from Adopt-A-Block of Aroostook will join members of the department during the collection and will provide community education materials.
