Household Medication Takeback Program

Safely Disposing of Medications

To prevent unused, unwanted, and outdated medications from being misused, harming the environment, or falling into the hands of children and animals, drug take-back programs provide an opportunity for the community to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths by disposing of unused or expired prescription drugs.

There is a prescription drug drop box located in the Police Department lobby. It is available to the public Monday thru Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM, excluding major US holidays.

  • Put all pills in one zip-lock bag, seal it tightly and drop the bag into the collection receptacle.
  • Trash or recycle the empty pill containers after you remove or scratch out personal information.
  • If other packaging, such as cardboard boxes, can be easily removed, please dispose of it separately.
