How should I dispose of unwanted medication?
Acton residents who wish to dispose of medication can drop off these items 24 hours a day in their original container (please use marker to cross off name but leave type of drug visible) to the Public Safety Building, located at 371 Main Street.

Sharps (syringes) can be brought to the foyer of the Town Hall located at 472 Main Street, between the hours of 8:00AM-5:00PM, Monday-Friday excluding holidays and dropped into the red kiosk labeled sharps.

For additional information, contact the Acton Health Department at 978-929-6632 or
