Red Barrel


The Red Barrel Program has just been installed in the Chelsea Police Department lobby.  Citizens are encouraged to participate if they need to dispose of any unwanted/expired medications, both over the counter and prescription medications.  Below are a few guidelines you should know to make the process go smoothly.  This program can be utilized 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

1.  No liquids, needles, or inhalers will be accepted.
2.  You will be asked to remove the pills from the bottles and dispose of them in a zip-loc bag.
3.  (Optional), you will be asked your name and phone number.
4.  You will also be asked the names of the medications for employee safety.
