Navigation Bullet Project Medicine Drop

image“Project Medicine Drop” is to encourage the public to discard outdated or unused prescription medications at three collection boxes located at municipal police departments. The drop boxes accept solid pharmaceuticals such as pills, capsules, patches, inhalers, and pet medications. They cannot accept syringes or liquids.

Flushing unused medicines or throwing them down a sink is not recommended because it contaminates waterways.
