The Hanahan Police Department has partnered with the Ernest E. Kennedy Center to become an official drug disposal site for old and unused medication. Through a grant, the Ernest E. Kennedy Center has donated a drug drop box to the police department and it has been installed at the main entrance to our Municipal Complex. If any of our citizens have any old or unused medication and are looking for a safe and discreet way of disposing of the medication, we encourage everyone to use this drug drop box.
Utilizing this box instead of simply flushing medication down the toilet or throwing it in the trash will help protect our environment. Disposing of old or unused medication in the drop box will help ensure it does not fall into the wrong hands. This is a secure drop box that only the police department has access to and once medication has been dropped in the box, the police department will remove it and ensure the contents are destroyed.
