Chief Tim Lentz announces that citizens looking to dispose of unused or unwanted prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications now have a convenient, safe way to do so. The Covington Police Department has installed a drug collection container that will allow the public to anonymously dispose of these medications anytime, no questions asked.
Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins and pet medications are all accepted. Members of the public wishing to take advantage of this program can bring these items to the Covington Police Department and place them into the drug collection container, located in the main lobby. Once collected, these drugs will be destroyed in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. This program does not cover illicit drugs, needles or other biohazard material.
