PEABODY PRESCRIPTION TAKE BACK PROGRAM
The Healthy Peabody Collaborative, the City of Peabody’s substance abuse prevention coalition, launched a Free Medication Disposal program at the Peabody Police Department. Residents
are encouraged to bring their unused/unwanted medications to the lobby of the Peabody Police Department for disposal in the black box.
Residents can also dispose of used needles and syringes
in puncture resistant containers in the red box also located in the lobby of the Police Department. The disposal boxes are accessible 24 hours a day. The disposal program was possible through a community collaboration of the Mayor’s Office, the Peabody Police and Health Departments, and Lahey Clinic North Shore.
