‘Drug Take Back Day’ Scheduled for Today CANCELLED Due to Anticipated Storm

This event has been CANCELLED due to the anticipated coastal storm.  If you have drugs in need of disposal, take them to the drug collection box at East Lyme Police Department, or State Police Troop F in Westbrook.

Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau (LYSB) will host another Drug Take Back event in April 2019

On Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lyme Street Fire House, 69 Lyme St., Old Lyme, Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau (LYSB) and the Lyme-Old Lyme (LOL) Prevention Coalition will give residents another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

This event is free and anonymous — no questions asked.

Since the first Lyme-Old Lyme Drug Take Back event in 2011, citizens have returned more than 500 pounds of medications to prevent misuse. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinets.

This event is co-sponsored by LYSB, LOL Prevention Coalition, Old Lyme Police Department, Troop F State Police, and Old Lyme Fire Department.

For more information about the Drug Take Back event or the LOL Prevention Coalition, contact LYSB at 860-434-7208 or visit www.lysb.org
