EAST RIDGE, TENN -   The East Ridge Police Department has installed a Prescription Drug Receptacle at their Ringgold Road location for citizens to drop off their expired or unused prescription medication. This allows the medication to be disposed of properly instead of ending up in landfills or in the local watershed.


According to Police Chief Reed, citizens can stop by the police department and drop off expired medications from their home medicine cabinets or if a relative has passed away and they were tasked with disposing of their family member’s medication. “This drop off station was made possible by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation as well as the Hamilton County Coalition. This will allow citizens to anonymously drop off any unused or expired medication during the week instead of waiting until the Drug Take-back program occurs, which is only twice a year.”


Citizens can access this drop off station at the East Ridge Police Department, located at 4214 Ringgold Road, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m., except on holidays. All expired or unused medication is accepted with the exception of sharps or syringes/needles.
