Collecting donations of used clothing & linens.

The average US citizen throws away 70 pounds of clothing each year, 85% of which is dumped into overcrowded landfills. Almost 100% of these items can be reused or recycled, saving not just the materials themselves, but also the water and energy used during the manufacturing process.

Learn how The ARC Montgomery‘s programs support children, adults & families affected by intellectual & developmental disabilities by providing child care, work training, & community living options.

The Arc Montgomery County collects clothing, linens, shoes, belts, handbags and backpacks which are reused, repurposed or recycled. This process provides employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

Montgomery County Law Enforcement Agencies Conduct Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

On SaturBanner2day, May 2 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., there will be a Prescription Drug Take-Back day at 10 drop-off locations throughout Montgomery County. This is a safe, free and anonymous opportunity to dispose of unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs. This initiative is part of an effort to prevent the increasing problems of prescription drug abuse and theft that continues to occur nationwide.   Click here for the full article and tips on disposing of medications.

Wheaton:  MCP 4th District Station – 2300 Randolph Rd.

Silver Spring: MCP 3rd District Station – 1002 Milestone Dr.

Takoma Park: Takoma Park Police Station in the Takoma Park Community Center Building Lobby – 7500 Maple Ave.

These locations will accept prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications only. Liquids, illicit drugs, needles, sharps and syringes cannot be accepted as part of the take-back program. Officers will staff collection boxes in the parking lots of the following facilities or in their lobbies.

The Montgomery County law enforcement community is particularly interested in medications containing controlled substances but will accept any medications brought for disposal. All sites will take pills and medication patches of all kinds. If possible, prescription labels should be removed or personal information should be blacked out; however, pill bottles will still be accepted if the labels are attached. No questions will be asked. This is an opportunity to safely empty out a medicine cabinet of drugs that are no longer needed.

ll the returned medications on Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will be incinerated by the Montgomery County Department of Police according to state and local regulations.

If you miss the May 2nd event, the Rockville City Police Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a Drug Take day on May 30.
