|24/7 MEDICINE DROP BOX INSTALLED AT POLICE HQ
|5/8/15 - The Maywood Police Department recently installed a prescription medicine drop box in the lobby of Police Headquarters.

Please note that liquids and syringes (sharps) cannot be accepted. A special thank you to Sgt. Mary Tutschek for overseeing the installation of the drop box.
DON'T FLUSH YOUR MEDICATION: A recent study shows that 80 percent of US streams contain small amounts of human medicines. Sewage systems cannot remove these medicines from water that is released into lakes, rivers or oceans. Fish and other aquatic animals have shown adverse effects from medicines in the water. And, even very small amounts of medicine have been found in drinking water.
