National Drug Take-Back Day

On Saturday, April 29, 2017, the Norwell Police Department, (located at 300A Washington Street) is hosting a take back event from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. This initiative aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of unwanted, unused and expired prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications.

South Shore Medical Center has partnered with the Norwell Police Department to remind our patients and all residents that although National Drug Take-Back Day is an important event to help reduce access to unused and unwanted medications, the Norwell Police Department has a medication drop-box in their lobby that is open for use by the public anytime, not just on April 29th. Patients who do not live near the Norwell Police Department are encouraged to contact their local police department to find the closest locations with a medication drop-box.

SSMC cannot accept any products or medications for disposal.

The Norwell Police Department is located at 300A Washington Street in Norwell.
