This year's "Drug Take Back Day" resulted in 107 pounds of drugs turned over to the DEA for destruction, according to a report by Medfield Police Chief Robert Meaney Jr.
"This translates to approximately 5 leaf collection sized bags of drugs that are no longer a hazard to our community and especially to our young people," he said in a press release on the town's website on Saturday, Oct. 26.
The Medfield Police Department maintains a drug collection container just inside the front door of the station. The container can be accessed 24 hours a day and is completely anonymous. We do not have the ability to collect needles or other types of sharps.
