Medication Disposal

The Shrewsbury Police Department currently does not have a scheduled Medication Take Back Event at this time. When there is a scheduled event, that will be heavily advertised on the town’s website, cable tv, and local newspapers.

In the interim, residents may dispose of medication (see what is and what isn’t accepted below) in a drop-off kiosk box located at:

CVS Pharmacy
197 Boston Turnpike
Shrewsbury, MA 01545 (Open 24 hours)
