Prescription Drug Take Back Results

The Essex Police Department participated in prescription drug take-back day on Saturday, April 28.  The purpose of this event is to ensure the safe disposal of prescription drugs so that they don't get into the wrong hands or pollute our waterways and wildlife. 

Over sixty law enforcement agencies across Vermont participated in prescription drug take-back day.  Essex Police collected 393.7 lbs of prescription drugs, the highest poundage in Chittenden County and the second highest in the state of Vermont.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this event and helped to keep our communities safe!
