National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs that are currently sitting in your home. The East Lyme Police Department has a Drop Box located in its Lobby so residents can safely dispose of prescription drugs. The Drop Box is available while the PD is open so you don’t have to wait until the 24th of April.

    The October 2020 Take Back Day brought in 985,392 pounds (492.7 tons) of medication. This is the largest amount ever collected in the program’s ten years!

    Senior Center- Time Table for Re-Opening

    CaptionCall provides captioned telephone service for hard-of-hearing people at no-cost. With the CaptionCall phone, you can simultaneously hear and read what the other person is saying. The CaptionCall phone displays big, easy-to-read text that automatically scrolls on the phone during a conversation. CaptionCall callers are also supported by amplifying the sound to better hear the caller’s voice.

    CaptionCall is for anyone who has hearing loss that makes it difficult for them to use the phone or for whom having captions would allow them to use the phone more effectively. During the pandemic, the need to connect with others has been more important than ever. There is no cost for the phone because CaptionCall’s service is mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), administered by the F.C.C., and funded by contributions from telecommunications companies.
