For residents unable to attend Saturday’s event, the Franklin Police Department offers a 24/7 option for prescription drug disposal. Thanks to a partnership with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, residents in Franklin can responsibly rid themselves of unused and unwanted prescriptions with a simple trip to Police Headquarters, 900 Columbia Avenue. The secure disposal point in our lobby operates much like a mailbox or bank night deposit. Drugs dropped in are secured below, emptied by the Department’s Evidence Section, and incinerated.
