Prescription Drug Drop Box Program
The medication collection and disposal program provides a safe disposal location for citizens to properly dispose of unused household medications. Prescription drug drop boxes are only permitted to reside within police departments.
A. This program provides an environmentally safe alternative to disposing of medications in the landfill or sewer systems that may later negatively affect the environment.
B. This program encourages citizens to remove their unneeded medications from their homes. This reduces access to addictive medications for accidental or intentional misuse by children or others in the home.
C. Commercial disposal from medical facilities, doctor/dental offices, veterinarians, etc. is prohibited and is not part of this program.
D. The material to be disposed must be destroyed in accordance with police department policies and must include incineration as the method of destruction. The incineration must be performed in an authorized facility designated to perform the destruction of controlled substances.
