Residents may use the drop box 24/7/365 to dispose of any unwanted medications. Medicines should be disposed of in their original container. Liquids should remain sealed in the original container. If the original container is submitted, remove the prescription label if it contains any personal identifying information. This program is anonymous. No questions will be asked nor requests for identification will be made. Syringes and sharps are not accepted.
