As Operation Season’s Greetings gets underway in Derry City and Strabane, police and partners are highlighting the importance of the RAPID bins located throughout the District.
RAPID stands for Remove All Prescription and Illegal Drugs and is a community safety initiative designed to promote the removal of all prescription medication and illegal drugs. The service is completely anonymous and anyone can use the bins to safely dispose of unused or out of date medicines and illegal drugs. The bins are emptied regularly and the drugs destroyed.
The bins are located in the following locations:
Bishop Street Community Centre
Old Library Trust
Hamilton’s Spar, Castlederg
McKenna’s Spar, Sion Mills
Northside shopping centre
Shantallow Community Residents Association
HURT offices, Clarendon Street
Ballymagroarty/Hazelbank Community Partnership
Haughey’s Costcutter, Strabane
