New drug drop boxes installed

ELLSWORTH — Healthy Acadia, in partnership with the Ellsworth and Mount Desert police departments, has announced the addition of two new prescription drug drop boxes for Hancock County, as part of its substance abuse prevention efforts.

The new prescription drug drop boxes have been placed in an accessible but secure location within the Ellsworth and Mount Desert police departments’ lobbies. The drop boxes will be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week at both of these locations.

The two new drop boxes bring the total number of prescription drug drop boxes in Hancock County to six. The other drop boxes are hosted at the Bar Harbor, Bucksport and Southwest Harbor police departments, as well as at the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.
