This is a new program whereby the department will provide a medical waste box at the police department to allow citizens who have outdated, prescription, or over the counter drugs, or medication they no longer use to drop the drugs into. The department will see they are properly disposed of, you will be responsible for the containers since some folks don’t want their prescription numbers or names made available. You may pour the contents of your containers excluding liquid, into the medical waste containers.

It is never advisable to dump medications into the trash or to flush them down the commode.
