Drop off unused prescription drugs during “National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day”

On Saturday, May 11th, Winnipeg Police Service Centres will open their doors to members of the public wishing to dispose of unwanted, expired or unused prescription drugs as part of National Prescription Drug Drop-off Day.

The event is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, and is being held in partnership with the Canadian Center on Substance Abuse and Public Safety Canada.

The proper disposal of these drugs is integral to the safety of our community and health of our environment.

  • Prescriptions drugs can be easy targets for abuse because they may be so readily available, especially for our children. Removing the hazard through the proper disposal of these drugs helps to prevent crime and what could become a tragic loss of life
  • When prescription or over-the-counter drugs are thrown into the garbage, or flushed down the sink or toilet, their chemical components may be added to the water supply or soil.

Drugs can be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at any of our Service Centres
