The Hamburg Township Police Department participates in the Livingston County Community Alliance's Big Red Barrel Project. The purpose of the project is to reduce the availability of prescription drugs to kids in the home.
All unused or unwanted prescription medications may be disposed of by being deposited into the Red Barrel located at the front entrance of the Hamburg Township Police Station. Prescription drugs may be dropped off 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and it is completely anonymous. All prescription drugs deposited in the Red Barrel are destroyed in an environmentally safe manner under the oversight of law enforcement officers.
The Red Barrel in front of the Hamburg Township Police Station was emptied 14 times during 2017 resulting in the disposal of approximately 354 pounds of prescription drugs.
