National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, Saturday, September 27, 2014
Did you know that most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends? Many homes have prescription medication in their cabinets that were not used or have expired.
On Saturday, September 27 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the Police Department will participate in a Drug Take Back Day.
This drug collection program protects our children, water and food supplies, while decreasing prescription drug abuse by making it easier to properly dispose of unused or expired medication.
The program is completely confidential for residential participants. No personal information will be collected. Please remove all prescription labels before arriving. Pills Only--liquids, sprays and needles will not be collected.
Now is a good time to check your cabinets for all your unused or expired drugs. Please take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of your unwanted prescription medication. As a participant in this County program, the Highland Heights Police Department will not be able to accept these items at any other time other than the scheduled drop off day. The next Drug Take Back Day will be scheduled in April, 2015.
Safe Disposal of Other Drugs
Here are some suggestions to dispose of prescription drugs--liquids, gels and/or pills. The purpose is to dispose of these chemicals so that animals and the water supply are protected.
• Never dispose of any drug in a sink or toilet.
• Put some drugs in used coffee grounds or kitty litter; place in a plastic bag, tie to prevent leakage and place in your regular garbage.
• Never use food to dispose of drugs--you don’t want animals to feed on this garbage.
• The Mayfield Heights Police Department has a Drug Collection Box located in their lobby that can be dropped off any day. This Collection Box is for pills only.

Have you ever wondered how our City and County officials communicate important, and sometimes, emergency information to residents?
The City of Highland Heights participates in the CodeRED Emergency Notification System.
This system allows us to telephone all or targeted areas of the City in case of an emergency situation that requires immediate action (such as a boil-water notice, missing child, utility outage, fires or floods, bomb threat, chemical spill or gas leak or evacuation notices). Important notifications are sent to the phone numbers provided. When you register, you may want to consider providing a cell phone number, along with your home phone, for notifications in power outage situations where you may not have home phone service. Please click here to register for this important notification system.
In addition, Cuyahoga County has recently rolled out its Ready Notify system, a countywide mass notification system. This system is used to notify Cuyahoga County residents of important County information. To register for the County notification system, go to www.ReadyNotify.CuyahogaCounty.us
Please note that it is important to register for both systems to ensure that you receive both City and County information.
