The Police Department is an active participant in the State of Connecticut Prescription Drug Take Back Program. A prescription medication drop-box is located in the lobby of the Bloomfield Police Department, which is open twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. Residents are encouraged to utilize the medication drop-box as an environmentally-safe way of disposing of their expired or unused medications.
Accepted items for the drop-box are prescriptions (i.e. prescription medications/ointments, and patches), over-the-counter medications, vitamins, samples, and medications for pets. Items that are NOT accepted are needles, sharps, thermometers, hydrogen peroxide, inhalers, aerosol cans, lotions, liquids, or medications from businesses or clinics.
Anyone with questions about the program may call Support Services Sergeant Thomas at: (860) 242-5501 extension 5162.
