The Police Department, West Haven Youth and Family Services and the West Haven Prevention Council are holding a Prescription Drug Takeback Day on April 24.
The takeback event aims to provide city residents with a safe and responsible way to dispose of unused prescription drugs, expired over-the-counter medications and nicotine products, including electronic cigarettes and other vaping devices.
The event, sponsored by the Justice Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at police headquarters, 200 Sawmill Road.
When returning items, people must wear face masks and maintain social distancing at all times, including staying 6 feet away from others.
Residents must remove the batteries from e-cigarettes and other vaping devices, or the Police Department will not accept them.
